Abstract:Mono and multifilamentary wires of BSCCO-2212 in Ag matrix are investigated in an axial strain experiment. The superconducting samples are soldered to a substrate that is bend in order to achieve a compressive or tensile axial strain. The I/sub c/-strain dependence is measured in magnetic fields up to 16 T at 4.2 K and the strain is varied from -2% to +1.2%. In these Bi-2122 samples any strain-induced I/sub c/ reduction is irreversible. Moreover a significant rise in I/sub c/ was never observed after changing the strain. Special attention is paid to the tensile axial strain regime (0 to 0.4%). A small but significant reduction in I/sub c/ is found in this case. The strain behaviour of these wires indicates that the I/sub c/ reduction is due to fractures in the superconducting filaments
