Best wishes
  EXTENDE wishes you a wonderful year 2017. We hope to have the courage to face the uncertainty of the future and do a great job, helping preserve the structure and thus, the environment. From our side, we will keep on sharing our knowledge with you and the NDT community. Happy 2017, in a sharing spirit!
Interview of Mr. Skoglund
 Mr. Lars Skoglund, you are working at Wesdyne Sweden, can you explain to us what do you do there?
Generally we work with NDE related problem-solving with main focus on the nuclear industry, my specialty area is Ultrasonic Probe Design. In-house here in Täby (just north of Stockholm) we develop robotics and inspection systems that are very good at inspecting “non-inspectable” objects where the access is very restricted, often deep down under water inside the reactor vessel. What perhaps distinguishes the probe design work here at WDS from a standard probe design is [...] Read more...
EXTENDE releases the Patch A
  Last december EXTENDE has released a corrective Patch A to the CIVA users. This patch mostly includes improvements to the UT Analysis module, allowing, among other things, to read Gekko acquisition files (version 1.6.1) and to improve the customization of the analysis report.
Additionally, for the modelling, a number of bugs have been corrected. Read more on our blog article.

CIVA Tip: N-skips reconstructions

Improve the reconstructed view

  How to display the corner echo at its correct location?
By default, the reconstruction of the B-Scan image in the 3D view is performed according to the direct ray paths. For instance when running a simulation with “half-skip” mode option the reconstructed B-Scan is automatically displayed as in the image. What happen now if the flaw is an outer breaking notch and if a full skip option is required to correctly model the configuration? Read more ...
