The presence and spatial distribution of features within the microstructure of armor ceramics have drastic effects upon both the dynamic and quasi-static performance of these materials. Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques such as ultrasound scanning provide a means to examine the bulk of a material without damaging or altering the sample. A study was conducted to correlate the relationship of non-destructive evaluation with microstructural variability and defect distributions for a sintered silicon carbide plate. Ultrasound C-scans were performed at 20MHz to determine the acoustic attenuation coefficient and the elastic modulus at each scanning point. Following non-destructive evaluation, the plate was machined into flexure bars for modulus of rupture determination. The identity and orientation of bars were preserved for comparison of mechanical properties to the NDE maps. Fractography was carried out on fracture surfaces to assess fracture behavior.
