EXTENDE is Proud to Announce the Release of “CIVA ANALYSIS”!EXTENDE98, Massy, France
CIVA is well known as a versatile NDT simulation software (UT, ET, RT, CT, and GWT). But, CIVA is now also the analysis tool for your UT acquisition data.
CIVA UT Analysis now includes tools to easily and quickly extract indications from UT Data (#id, depth, size, etc.) and to fill in an indication table that can be exported in ASCII file and/or directly prepare an examination report, including images, distances and comments by a simple click of a button.
Always striving to propose cutting-edge features and not only basic ones, the indication selection cannot only be performed manually or based on classical “-N dB grouping” operations (although these operations are now really easy to do in CIVA) but a powerful algorithm called “One Click Segmentation” is now available to automatically extract the relevant information in a given area (even from the C-scan view). Another one-click feature allows you to see relevant data in the 3D view of the component.
This new version proposes both basic functionalities (cursors, measurement and selection tools, gates and limitations, A-scan time tracker, etc.) and powerful tools for advanced analysis. These include automatic & simplified segmentation as described above plus also one click “-N dB grouping”, advanced segmentation, “Simulation – Acquisition” direct comparisons, signal processing, hysteresis fixing, amplitude histogram, eraser, etc.) and data reconstruction (simple reconstruction, surface reconstruction, Total Focusing Method). The analysis environment is adapted to also process multi-sensor acquisitions (links between different cursors, multi-burst layout).
Once the processing is performed on a given file, most steps of the applied procedure can be saved. The steps are kept in memory to facilitate doing the job in several steps or allowing a real traceability of the analysis process and a fast repeatable procedure. These templates allow you to have several dedicated environments and processes ready to use.
CIVA Analysis is included with the UT simulation module of CIVA (in its 2015 release, available February 2015). CIVA Analysis is also available as a standalone product.
In addition to CIVA Analysis, CIVA 2015 also includes significant improvements in the individual simulation modules of CIVA from the CIVA 11.0 version.
