The one-dimensional isothermal flow of viscous-liquid fibers displays draw resonance instability when a constant-velocity winder condition is applied. This instability is removed when a constant-force condition occurs at the winder. The instability mechanism is examined and used to explain the stability trends when the effects of gravity, surface tension, inertia, and wind stress are included.
