Failure Mechanism Models for Material Aging Due to Inter-Diffusion
J. Li and A. Dasgupta
This tutorial illustrates design situations where material aging due
to inter diffusion in some components can compromise system performance
over time, thereby acting as a wearout failure mechanism. Micro-structural
diffusion mechanisms, continuum diffusion models, and inter-diffusion analysis
techniques are presented to design against such failures. An example
illustrates the application of the mechanisms, models, and techniques in
article is available to CALCE Consortium Members.
