Fiber in bending conversion calculator

This calculator can be used to estimate the maximum stress associated with fiber in bending. It can also be used to determine the minimum bend radius value necessary to remain below a given stress level. The calculator updates the field values after each keystroke, and the data is for 125 µm glass cladding diameter fiber.
