  Fibre Channel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fibre Channel is standardized in the T11 Technical Committee of the InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS), an American National Standard Institute (ANSI) accredited standards committee.
Fibre Channel started in 1988, ANSI standard approval in 1994, as a way to simplify the HIPPI system then in use for similar roles.
Fibre Channel was primarily interested in simplifying the connections and increasing the lengths, as opposed to increasing speeds.

 Abaca Fibre
This fibre is also known in the trade as manila and manila hemp, but abaca is a hard fibre and is entirely different from true hemp, which is a soft fibre and is the product of Cannabis sativa.
The fibre so cleaned has only to be hung up to dry in the open air, when, without further treatment, it is ready to be graded and baled for shipment.
The quality or grade of abaca fibre is determined by the part of the stalk from which the fibre is obtained, by the amount of serration of the stripping knives and the degree of tension holding the knife against the block, and by prompt and careful drying of the fibre.

 Dark fibre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It therefore makes sense to plan for and install significantly more fibre than is needed for current demand, to provide for future expansion and provide for network redundancy in case any of the cables fail.
In the dot-com boom, a large number of telcos built optical fibre networks, each with the business plan of cornering the market in telecommunications by providing a network with sufficient capacity to take all existing and forecast traffic for the entire region served.
The availablity of wavelength division multiplexing further reduced the demand for fiber by increasing the capacity that could be placed on a single fibre by a factor of up to 100.

The concept that fibre could play a preventive role in colon cancer was first proposed in 1971 when Burkitt put forth the proposal that fibre could prevent colon cancer by regulating the speed and bulk of the food that passes through the intestines.
The water-soluble fibres include such fibres as pectin, hemicelluloses, and storage polysaccharides that are found mainly in fruits and vegetables, and gums which are found mainly in cereals.
In the case of fruits, the soluble fibre which retards the rate of glucose absorption is pectin, and it prevents the glucose surge and subsequent hypoglycaemia associated with a refine food diet devoid of natural fibre.

The irritant properties of fibres have been investigated in limited studies with volunteers and it is evident that the irritation increases in proportion to the diameter.
Thus, while there is still scientific debate about the properties of fibres which are important in relation to induction of these tumours, there is substantial human evidence that controlling asbestos exposure to levels where fibrosis is not seen reduces the incidence of the tumour to levels seen in the general population.
Fibre size and fragility (the ability to generate fibrous dust) are important criteria in determining the biological activity of fibres.

 Resistant Starch: The New Generation Of Fibre   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
That fibre is a core component of a balanced diet is well known — but fibre, as well as being hard to process, has a reputation for being dense, unappetising and virtually inedible in quantity.
Dietary fibre is defined as components of plant materials in the diet, which are resistant to digestion by enzymes produced by humans in the small intestine and, therefore, reaches the large intestine (colon).
Fibres such as wheat bran also contain oil and fat which can turn rancid, so some of the ingredients used to increase fibre content have a limited shelf-life because of the develop-ment of an 'off' taste.

 Fibre
Fibre is indigestible carbohydrate found in the cell walls of plant foods.
A diet high in soluble fibre helps lower cholesterol levels because it binds intestinal bile acids which are removed in the stools instead of being reabsorbed into the bloodstream.
Soluble fibre also reduces the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive problems by helping to regulate both constipation and diarrhoea, and slows the absorption of simple sugars, which helps control the rise in blood sugar after eating.

 Fibre Optic Basics
Because fibre is non-conductive, it can be used where electrical isolation is needed, for instance between buildings where copper cables would require cross bonding to eliminate differences in earth potentials.

Loose tube fibre cable can be indoor or outdoor, or both, the outdoor cables usually have the tube filled with gel to act as a moisture barrier which stops the ingress of water.

 Fibre advice from Netfit
Fibre is the indigestible plant material, found in fruits, vegetables, grains and beans.
It reduces constipation as the bulk of fibre, plus the water and bacteria added to the waste, produce a stool consistency which is much easier to remove from the body without straining in any way.
It passes through the gut unchanged, as it does not dissolve in water, resulting in a speeding process of the digestive track, which in turn reduces the risk of colon cancer.

 Carbon Fibre - Material Spec and Selection   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The glass fibre is used as a filling between layers of Carbon, this method of construction allows us to utilise the excellent strength and stiffness properties of Carbon fibre at the more critical outside surfaces of the part, whilst using the superior toughness and lower cost glass fibre as the centre to the sandwich.
The percentage of Carbon to glass fibre varies for each material but CSC always presents good toughness and value with only a small weight penalty, In some applications this slight increase in weight is a positive advantage as for example in most chassis the extra weight helps with the stability of the car.
The next stage is to lay the fibre and resin onto the tool and then whilst holding every thing in place by vacuum the whole thing is placed in an oven for final curing.
