eNDT Application

  EXTENDE has launched a free tablet and mobile application called eNDT, for people involved in Non Destructive Testing (NDT). The goal of this tool is to ease your NDT professional life and education. You can learn and practice NDT in the train, plane, during a boring meeting, wherever and whenever you want with your mobile device (cell and tablet, optimized for tablet)! More information about what this application includes is available here.
Interview: Mr. Philippe DUMAS and Theo Martinez

Philippe DUMAS and Theo MARTINEZ

  We had the chance to interview Mr. Theo Martinez, Modeling, Testing and Measures Engineer, and Mr. Philippe Dumas, Application Engineer specialized in NDT, both at Imasonic. You will find their interview on our website.
You have been using simulation for many years now. Could you explain how simulation helps you in your daily tasks?
Imasonic designs and manufactures ultrasonic sensors for industrial and medical sectors. We have been using CIVA for over fifteen years, for any kind of probe, in order to... Read more.

Publications on CIVA modeling: SCH and MDA
  If you are interested in more information about ultrasonic measurement models, the link below will direct you to a paper describing the theoretical fundamentals of a reciprocity-based ultrasonic measurement model. This complete inspection simulation can be decomposed in two modeling steps, one dedicated to transducer radiation, and one to flaw scattering and echo synthesis. Read more...
International Materials Simulation & Engineering Chair
  As EXTENDE is a member of its Executive Committee and one of its Industrial partner, we would like to present you the Materials Simulation & Engineering Chair. Based on the skills of the scientific committee in many scales of modelling and simulation, it is constituted in order to form and direct a network of excellence, bringing together internationally recognized professors and researchers on all topics of modelling and simulation in the field of materials science, to anticipate and respond to the needs of fundamental and applied research in the studycademic researchers in the area of modelling and simulation in materials science...

CIVA tip: Rehost


  With CIVA 11, a new licensing system, based on the “Sentinel LDK” technology, has been deployed. In particular, the soft key system, or “SL key”, now allows you to install a license without the need for hardware to be received. One benefit of this system, apart from the reduction of environmental impacts (no USB key, electronic “shipment”, etc.), is to limit the problems due to a broken or lost hardware key. Read more...
