Ultrasonic B-Scan simulations

Dear colleagues.

I am trying to find a software package that generates simulated B-Scans and or sector scans from the geometry of a component and probe specifications. The packages I have found only show the beam paths, but do not generate simulated B-Scan (or sector scans). Typical applications would be for a turbine blade root inspection, such that the expected signal can be calculated prior to an inspection (with mode conversions, 2nd echo's etc).

If there is a package out there that can do this, please let me know.

Best regards

Re: Ultrasonic B-Scan simulations
Philippe, this might be a tough one. You could contact
the folks at www.sonotech.de . Eventhough they are mostly
working in medical they know a lot about simulation. A
long time ago I saw one of their med B-Mode simulations
and it impressed me.

Regards, Joerg.

Re: Ultrasonic B-Scan simulations
We at Uppsala University have developed software tool DREAM that may be helpful. It can be used for simulations of acoustic fields generated by different shapes of transducers.
It is freeware that can be downlowaded from
http://www.signal.uu.se/Toolbox/dream/

The software you need is available from Force Institute in Danmark under trademark UltraSIM.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?

...
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.
