We believe that your probes, your procedures, your systems, your process must be perfectly controlled, regularly optimized and that quality and innovation are key factors for your development

We work with probe manufacturers, NDT system designers, inspection teams and NDT labs around the world.

WE SECURE YOUR PROBE, YOUR MOCK-UP OR YOUR PROCESS DESIGN

With CIVA, we can display the beam in the specimen.

We display the zone coverage, here with a phased array probe.

We design innovative probes.

Our methodology and our tools allow you to optimize the size and the number of elements of your phased array probe.

We check the ability of your probe to detect the flaws you are looking for.

We check that the flaws that have to be inserted in your mock-up are well positionned in order to avoid complex and unwanted interaction (mode conversion...).

WE REDUCE THE TIME NECEsSARY TO DEVELOP AND QUALIFY YOUR NDT PROCESS

With CIVA, we can simulate the probes you wish to use on the mock-up for which you have only plans, and with the flaws you imagine. Everything is virtual, no waste, no lost investments, a greatly reduced time frame.

We can make variations of the values of a parameter for which an experimental variation would be very expensive or impossible: Frequency of the probe, size of the crystal, position or power of a source, tilt of a defect from -80° to 80°, orientation of the anisotropy of the material of the mock-up...

WE EVALUATE THE IMPACT OF INFLUENTial PARAMETERS

We can vary influential parameters in a range of values. These parameters can be related to the probe, the flaws, the mock-up or the inspection procedure.

Combined variations will allow you to reduce the number of mock-ups you will need, and to evaluate the range in which these parameters will have the most important influence.

You can make all these simulations with CIVA. We can also offer our calculation capabilities to save time, with or without checking your configurations. We can use more that 25 calculation nodes, and we also have internal tools to extract results in a rigourous and efficient manner.

In 2013, we have made more than 50 000 calculations for our customers.

WE HELP YOU UNDERSTAND COMPLEX RESULTS

Using simulation allows you to understand complex echos, coming from specific modes for example, in a weld.

 
 

Specific calculation may help you see what the result would be for cases with complex interaction between defects.

 
 

Unknown echoes, surprising amplitude, unexpected result, we help you understand physical phenomena thanks to simulation.
