We believe that a better mastery of implemented Non Destructive Testing has a direct impact on their cost and the safety of facilities.


Most major indusry leaders use CIVA. You have to design, qualify, implement, improve or evaluate NDT on your facilities, we can help you and reduce the costs.

SIMULATION RESULTS can be integrated into POD, thus reducing the number of mock-ups.

CIVA allows to calculate POD's, and also to import experimental results that can be melted with simulated results.


UT, ET, RT, all three techniques are linked with the POD tool of CIVA. We can help you define your design of experiment, we can help you select the uncertainties and their range of variation along with the appropriate statistic operator.


With CIVA, we can display the beam in the specimen.

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...).

We can vary influential parameters in a range of values. These parameters can be related to the probe, the flaws, the mock-up or the inspection procedure.

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 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 efficiently and rigourously.

In 2013, we have made more than 50 000 calculations for our customers.

we help you understand complex results

Using simulation allows you to understand complex echos, coming from specific modes for example, in a weld.


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 can run simulations for you. Either complex cases with 3D CAD, anisotropic material, branched defects, tomographic cases... Or massive calculation cases with hundreds of flaws, parameters variations, multiple probes...


We have the computers to run calculations, we have the tools to manage thousands of results without mistake.
