EXTENDE News - May 2023
TraiNDE RT v1.2 is now available


  A "PC version" is introduced with this new release of the RT training simulator, in addition to the Virtual Reality (VR) one. It provides a second way to use the simulator, without having to go through VR.
This version also integrates new exercises, and the possibility to put several IQIs on the same component.

Even more reasons to practice more, anywhere, easily, and to get better prepared for RT certifications thanks to TraiNDE RT!

CIVA Tip: Complete an already computed Monte-Carlo


  A complete RT calculation requires the consideration of direct and scattered radiation.

As a reminder, in CIVA, the calculation of scattered radiation is performed via a Monte-Carlo calculation for which the user must define a number of photons to model. This Monte-Carlo calculation can sometimes take several hours (depending on the complexity of the configuration - thick part or very absorbent material...). [...] Read more
