NDT is heading into this new year (and decade!) with a brand new CIVA version, as well as a new and innovative tool from our passionate team: TraiNDE UT. These make for a great start, but rest assured that we, at EXTENDE, will be committed as ever to bring more to the NDE community. Building a safer future requires to design the right tools today, and with that in mind, we wish you a happy 2020!

TraiNDE UT tutorials

  The first three tutorials are now available to explain how to use TraiNDE UT:
TraiNDE UT 1.1


  The first version of TRAINDE UT, the innovative virtual simulator for the training of NDT inspectors, was officially released and delivered to our first customers last September. A new 1.1 version is expected to be released at the beginning of February. This new version mainly integrates significant new features for the interactivity management with the tactile screen. More information will be coming soon.

CIVA Tip: Detector degradation for a Monte-Carlo calculation


  A new feature has been developed in CIVA RT/CT to reduce the calculation time of configurations that take into account the Monte-Carlo calculation (contribution of scattered radiation). It is now possible to degrade the resolution of the detector during the Monte-Carlo calculation and to merge this result with the result obtained by the Beer-Lambert calculation (contribution of direct radiation) for which the detector is not degraded [...] Read more
