CIVA is used by most nuclear global players. Our deep knowledge of nuclear NDT cases, of qualification process, especially RSEM and ENIQ, and of constraints related to inspection in this area makes us an efficient partner.
The Scientific and Engineering Centre for Nuclear and Radiation Safety, establishment of the Federal Environmental Industrial and Nuclear Supervision Service (ROSTECHNADZOR) has delivered a Certification Passport for CIVA.
We contribute to your qualification dossiers
We have written qualification dossiers or contributed to part of them. Thanks to simulation, you can vary the value of some parameters easily, and you can demonstrate the influence or the non influence of these parameters. ENIQ, RSEM, RCC-MRX, AMSE, we know the codes, rules and recommandations.
we secure your probe, mock-up or ndt process design
We display the zone coverage, here with a phased array probe.
We design innovative probes.
Our methodology and our tools allow 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 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 significant influence.
You can make all these simulations with CIVA. We can also propose 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.
we can run and analyse complex and massive calculations
We have the computers to run calculations, we have the tools to manage thousands of results without mistake.
