Civa POD Tools for Pipeline Qualifications

I think - no wonder, that the CIVA POD surface is easy to use. In the frame of the EU-funded PICASSO Project (see https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/92890/reporting/en) Airbus as well CEA (CIVA) where partner besides other important aeronautic OEMs. This project was established to develop a handy system to do POD calculations including modelling approaches. It was established as a chance for a real common problem solver. By the way this topic avoided the problem to setup another EU Framework Project not being successfull in the commissions evaluation, we ended with 2 rounds before: offernig a bundle of flowers which only reflected the interenst of one of two project partners but not really demonstrating a common interest of all. POD in contrast was a real good subject as allpartners could easily team up. This objective of the project was decided in Berlin at the ECNDT 2006.
At Airbus already min 2 Excel-based tools existed for POD driven NDT-Procedure qualification
(https://www.ndt.net/article/reliability2009/Inhalt/we3a1.pdf), but the integration into CIVA seemed to be a further chance. Nevertheless the experience with the existing solutions in larger POD exercises (all NDT procedures are subject to POD based method qualifications) helped to optimize the software towards a certain simplicity for application.
I recommend some publications to show how this process happened:


Product Spotlight

Ultrasonic tomograph for imaging of concrete structures А1040 MIRA

Applicable for concrete inspection allowing imaging of the internal structure of objects from conc
rete, reinforced concrete, different stones. The operation applies pulse-echo technique at one-side access to the object. The instrument is feasible for concrete inspection for searching conduct ducts, conduits, detection of foreign inclusions, holes, honeycombing, cracks and other concrete defects.

CIVA 2017 UT Module

CIVA NDE Simulation Software is the world leader of NDT Simulation. The UT simulation Module incl
udes: - "Beam computation": Beam propagation simulation - "Inspection Simulation": Beam interaction with flaws or specimens The user can simulate a whole inspection process (pulse echo, tandem or TOFD) with a wide range of probes (conventional, Phased- arrays or EMAT), components, and flaws.

OmniScan™ X3 flaw detector

The OmniScan X3 flaw detector is a complete phased array toolbox. Powerful tools, like total focus
ing method (TFM) images and advanced visualization capabilities, enable you to complete your inspection with greater confidence.

Wireless TOFD scanner

Quick, accurate and highly reproducible welds testing. The System operates wirelessly and is compat
ible with any type of Windows based Laptop, Desktop or Tablet.
