Abstract

A computer simulation of nondestructive failure prediction in silicon nitride containing silicon inclusions has been developed. The preliminary application of the simulation examines the results of an inspection that uses a single transducer in the pitch/catch mode. The limitations of the inspection method, especially when applied to nonspherical inclusions, are exposed by the simulation. Also the expected influences of the signal-to-noise ratio and the inclusion size distribution on the fail~re and rejection probabilities emerge from the analysis in quantitative form.
