After introducing the Primitive Bridge Function, a characteristic function describing the behavior of bridged c omponents, we present a theorem for detecting feedback bridge faults. We discuss two di erent methods of bridge fault simulation, one of which is new, and present experimental results relating the relative e ciency of the two methods. We conclude that the new simulation method, Wire Memory bridge fault simulation, is more e cient|especially for larger circuits.
