search an ultrasonic simulation software for NDE

i am a french future engineer working for the Snecma Moteurs in France.
We are looking for a software that could be able to simulate an ultrasonic non destructive evaluation,for pieces in immersion.

This software should be able to:

simulate an inspection path and give the virtual feedback (A-scans..., intensity distribution in observation plane...) as using a computerized UT equipment
model any defect
read CAD files
allow comparisons with flat bottom holes...
show the theoretical volume guarantee by the simulated inspection
treat 3D pieces, with complex geometry and several sound speed, attenuation, back echos, shadowed areas...
Do you have such a software, or contacts to give me in that field?

Please not reply to this mail automatically ans send me informations (documentation, price, possibility of on site testing...) at the following adress:

: We are looking for a software that could be able to simulate an ultrasonic non destructive evaluation,for pieces in immersion.

Try to find a contact to NEA (Nuclear Energy Agency of France) at Saclay (South of Paris). Contact Person: Philippe Benoist.
They have good simulation software, which should match your requirements.

But I don't know the conditions of availability (for non nuclear resp. non governmental use).

True to life ultrasonic simulations are the business of www.auto-ut.co.uk.

Auto-ut offer ultrasonic simulations which incorporate virtual machines and virtual welds.


Product Spotlight

Magnetic X-Ray Pipeline Crawler 6''-60''

Suitable to work in 6''-60''diameter with speed of up to 18m/min, Max. moving diatance 5 kilometer
s and provide the efficient inspection of the pipeline.

UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2

UCI hardness tester NOVOTEST T-U2 is is used for non-destructive hardness testing of: metals and
alloys by scales of hardness: Rockwell (HRC), Brinell (HB), Vickers (HV); non-ferrous metals, alloys of iron etc., and using five additional scales for calibration; with tensile strength (Rm) scale determines the tensile strength of carbon steel pearlitic products by automatic recalculation from Brinell (HB) hardness scale.

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.


Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
