We work with probe manufacturers, NDT system designers, inspection teams and NDT labs around the world.
WE SECURE YOUR PROBE, YOUR MOCK-UP OR YOUR PROCESS DESIGN
We display the zone coverage, here with a phased array probe.
We design innovative probes.
Our methodology and our tools allow you to optimize the size and the number of elements of your phased array probe.
We check the ability of your probe to detect the flaws you are looking for.
We check that the flaws that have to be inserted in your mock-up are well positionned in order to avoid complex and unwanted interaction (mode conversion...).
FLUX® can simulate infrared thermography inspection (IRT). Examples of temperature charts obtained by simulation for various defect sizes, specimen materials, heating frequencies and durations (Induction Thermography):
WE REDUCE THE TIME NECEsSARY TO DEVELOP AND QUALIFY YOUR NDT PROCESS
We can make variations of the values of a parameter for which an experimental variation would be very expensive or impossible: Frequency of the probe, size of the crystal, position or power of a source, tilt of a defect from -80° to 80°, orientation of the anisotropy of the material of the mock-up...
WE EVALUATE THE IMPACT OF INFLUENTial PARAMETERS
Combined variations will allow you to reduce the number of mock-ups you will need, and to evaluate the range in which these parameters will have the most important influence.
You can make all these simulations with CIVA. We can also offer our calculation capabilities to save time, with or without checking your configurations. We can use more that 25 calculation nodes, and we also have internal tools to extract results in a rigourous and efficient manner.
In 2013, we have made more than 50 000 calculations for our customers.
WE HELP YOU UNDERSTAND COMPLEX RESULTS
Specific calculation may help you see what the result would be for cases with complex interaction between defects.
Unknown echoes, surprising amplitude, unexpected result, we help you understand physical phenomena thanks to simulation.
