Overview of Ceramics Project
Is Version Of
As was discussed previously, an important element in the development of a quantitative NDE technology is the coupling of nondestructive measurement results, failure modeling, and risk analysis to produce an accept/reject criteria. This basic philosophy was first formulated from first principles in the context of a project to produce a quantitative inspection capability for ceramic materials. In this paper, the history of this project is reviewed and the plans for this year's program, whose results you will hear today, are described.
