    Significance and Use

    This practice describes a method of fabricating known discontinuities in a ceramic specimen. Such specimens are needed and used in nondestructive examination to demonstrate sensitivity and resolution and to assist in establishing proper examination parameters.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice describes procedures for fabricating both green and sintered test bars of silicon carbide and silicon nitride containing both internal and surface voids at prescribed locations.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
