Partnership in the non destructive evaluation industry
CIVAnde simulation software capitalises results of research in non-destructive evaluation (NDE) carried out at CEA and its partners in various application fields such as automotive, nuclear industry, aircraft and aerospace.
CIVAnde offers within the same framework several simulation modules suitable to research and industrial needs.
Since its first steps, the development of CIVAnde followed a two fold strategy: the choice of semi-analytical methods and the development of models integrated into software modules usable by operators who are not simulation specialists. CIVAnde addresses both ultrasonic and eddy currents control strategies.
Completing its line of solutions, this partnership put CEDRAT ahead to provide software solutions for the simulation of NDE devices and systems.
