Ultrasonic Characterization of Microspherical Inclusions in Zirconia and Crystallized Glass
In high performance ceramic materials the critical flaw size is ≃ 10 µm. Not all inclusions are equally detrimental to the structural properties. Therefore it is necessary to determine their size and composition.
