Description

Ceramic materials offer low weight, high temperature stability, good wear resistance and good hardness, and are thus becoming increasingly important materials in high temperature applications such as heat engines, heat shields and aerospace leading edge structural components. Ceramic materials tend to be brittle in nature, however, and their mechanical properties are sensitive to many types of flaws which can be produced in manufacturing. These flaws are currently difficult to detect with nondestructive techniques, and have thus remained poorly characterized.l2 For this reason, new NDE methods are needed to help enable the large-scale implementation of ceramics, and overcome the poor reliability and reproducibility common to current ceramic manufacturing processes.
