01.072022EXTENDE acts for sustainable developmentCategory "More to Extende" | No comment

As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability, we are certified in accordance with ISO 14001:2004. Thus, we monitor our environmental impacts and try to reduce them. For impacts related to travels (visits to customers, training courses, conferences), these are difficult to reduce without damaging our business, so we act through carbon contribution.

We have contributed up to 100% (plus an extra donation due to few travels during the pandemic) of our travels emissions of year 2020 by funding the project "Energy efficiency and thermal comfort of educational buildings in Arkhangai" by the Geres association. You can find more details about this project on their website and in this document.

Set up in 1976, Geres is a development NGO working in Europe, Africa and Asia to improve living conditions and fight against climate change and its impacts. As a field player, the energy transition is a major lever in their action in favor of greater climate solidarity.

CIVA 2021

CIVA 2021 features:

  • A new NDE method joins the CIVA platform with a Thermographic Testing module. It includes Optical lamp thermographic inspection simulation and an Induction Heating computation module.
  • A dedicated tool for Steam Generator Tube Eddy Current inspection modelling, with the capacity to simulate many complex configurations (U-Bend, support plates, complex defects, section distortions, etc.). CIVA ET now also provides the possibility to perform field computations in complex geometries.
  • CIVA UT comes with a new "Sensitivity Coverage" environment to give ultrasonic coverage and sensitivity maps, advanced features for PA UT TFM to help select the most efficient modes, new probes in CIVA UT (Daisy, Shear Waves 0°, etc.), and also more possibilities offered for complex configurations with the FEM engine available within CIVA UT.
  • CIVA RT now includes a bridge to the advanced analysis software ImageJ.
  • CIVA GWT lets you simulate inspection configuration with more defects and discontinuities.
  • Parametric studies and metamodels have been reorganized for more efficient design of experiments.
  • And let’s not forget the recent CIVA SHM and CIVA Script modules that are, of course, still there in CIVA 2021!

You will find more information about the new features of CIVA 2021 in our release note and a complete description of CIVA in our datasheet.

Our users with a valid maintenance contract will receive this update within the next few days.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about CIVA.
