133 Characteristics Of Interest To Monolithic Ceramics

There are several characteristics of monolithic ceramic materials that influence the properties and failure probability of as-produced components. These include uniformity of density, presence of internal and surface flaws, and regions of porosity. Common processing steps were listed in Table 13.1. Each step in the process has the potential to contribute to the introduction of a flaw. NDE technologies that can be applied in the different steps are discussed in the following sections. References are provided to allow the reader more complete information.
