Simulation and Methodology

EXTENDE News - July 2023
VOD of the webinar on CIVA Data Science

CIVA Data Science

  Real use of "AI" in NDE suffers from the difficulty of getting sufficient and relevant data to train algorithms. Simulation can help by efficiently providing massive and relevant data sets.

On June 15th, we held a webinar on the new Data Science module in CIVA, that allows you to bring together simulations, real data, and data management tools to design and validate Machine-Learning-based diagnostic models in an NDE environment.

The replay of this webinar is now available on our YouTube Channel.
Training sessions: there's more than CIVA UT!

Training Courses

CIVA Data Science      CIVA AUT Pipeline

Reliability in NDE training course

  Since the end of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, attendance to our "live" training sessions has been on the rise, and it is delightful to see so many wonderful people in person again!

Besides inter-company and dedicated training sessions on classical CIVA simulation tools (UT, ET, RT, GWT, etc.), EXTENDE also provides more specific courses. Let's mention the most recent sessions organized in our head office in Massy:
  • Reliability in NDE: This session covers the fundamentals of POD, sensitivity analysis methodologies for NDE, MAPOD, standards dealing with reliability, etc.
  • CIVA Data Science: Introduction to this new module aiming at using modelling for machine-learning-based defect detection and classification tools
  • CIVA AUT Pipeline: A new module to support girth welds AUT inspection performance demonstration
The next Reliability in NDE session will take place from October 10th to 12th.

If you have an interest for CIVA Data Science, AUT Pipeline or any other modules in CIVA, please contact us.
Presentation on training simulators at NDT in Canada


  The EXTENDE team participated in several international NDT conferences throughout June and July, namely: NDT In Canada, Les journées COFREND, and ECNDT.

It was a pleasure to meet you there and to share about your projects and our recent innovations!

These events involved presentations on different topics. If you are interested, you can download the presentation made for NDT in Canada by Starr D'Auria about training simulators.
Interview of Jose-Luis Lanzagorta

Jose-Luis Lanzagorta

  Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Jose-Luis Lanzagorta, from the NDT lab at IDEKO.

You work for the IDEKO Technology Center. Can you please describe the main activities and research topics related to NDT at the center?

At IDEKO, we are pioneers in advanced manufacturing solutions. One of our areas of expertise lies in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), with a primary focus on Ultrasonic Testing (UT) and Eddy Current (EC) technologies. From simulation to real-world applications, we seamlessly integrate every step of the value chain. [...] Read more
CIVA Tip: SuperBatch


  The Batch Manager has evolved since CIVA 2023. However, the final objective remains the same: to launch a series of predefined simulations based on any of the techniques available in CIVA. The main reasons for using the Batch Manager are as follows:
  • No need to run calculations manually, one by one
  • Reduce calculation times [...] Read more
