03.222023CIVA Analysis can now read SONATEST data!Category "CIVA Software" | No comment

CIVA 2023 is compatible with a new UT acquisition system, since SONATEST *.utdata files can be now loaded and processed (A-Scan, B-Scan, C-Scan, D-Scan, L-Scan, S-Scan or TFM data).

The image above shows an S-Scan weld inspection file projected on the weld profile in the 2D viewer. SONATEST systems’ users can then access to the advanced analysis tools of CIVA UT, such as the 3D renderer, the very efficient segmentation algorithm for indications detection and characterization, the ability to customize and automate the analysis process with templates, create reports, the "Simulation on Acquisition" feature to simulate flaws response within a real file, the compatibility with the latest CIVA Data Science module to train machine learning aided diagnostic tools with such acquisition data and CIVA simulations… And much more!

This compatibility is available for free to all CIVA UT Analysis users who can work with a unique software on the analysis of many different acquisition data formats.

More information on CIVA Analysis is available here.

CIVA 2023

CIVA 2023 is now available! This new release mainly features:

  • A new AUT Pipeline module: Dedicated to Girth Weld testing applications, it has been designed for Oil & Gas stakeholders to support performance demonstration in pipeline project validations as well as to optimize inspection techniques and their reliability.
  • A new Data Science environment: It provides tools to manipulate and merge databases of simulated and/or experimental data, then train and test Machine Learning-based classification and detection diagnostic models : a first step for CIVA in Artificial Intelligence for NDE to support inspection diagnostics!
  • A lot of new features in CIVA SHM: new specimen geometries available, new defect types, attenuation can be accounted for, new reconstruction algorithm and processing tool, improved performance.
  • New Phase Coherence algorithms available in TFM UT.
  • SONATEST UT data format compatible with CIVA UT Analysis.
  • Pulsed Phase Thermography in CIVA TT.
  • 2D CAD specimen now available in ET Inspection Simulation.
  • Capacity to import experimental data in CIVA ET through *.csv files.
  • New capacities (dispersion curves for anisotropic tubes and heterogeneous pieces) and improved performance (new solver) in CIVA GWT.
  • New ASTM wire type IQIs available and better management of scattering computation in CIVA RT.
  • A "SuperBatch" manager to accelerate computation times and robustness on multi-core computers.

You will find more information about the new features of CIVA 2023 in our Release Note.

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