Free webinar

Hi everyone !

You face complex inspection issues regarding rail or wheelset NDT inspections?

You need to improve performance? Reliability of detection, sizing ability, inspection speed, ...

Now is a great time to register for our free webinar, in which we will present how simulation can help improve inspection techniques in railway problematics.

This webinar of 1h30 and presented in english by Fabrice Foucher who will present you the capabilities of CIVA

You will be able to interact via the chat and ask questions at the end of the presentation. 

Two sessions are organized :

  • July the 6th 2017 at 10 a.m. (CET) (this session is full now)
  • July the 6th 2017 at 4 p.m (CET)

03.132017Russian customer testimonial on CIVA softwareCategory "CIVA Software" | No comment


Dear readers,

We received a publication from a Russian customer, D.A. Sednev . Have a look at his testimonial below:

" Software platform CIVA was installed in Tomsk Polytechnic University in December, 2015. The reason for that was the necessity of Tomsk Open Laboratory for Material Inspection (TOLMI) in universal software for NDT result simulation.  Based of Laboratory requirements, the following modules have been acquired:

  • Ultrasound testing module;
  • Radiography-Tomography module.

           In March 2016 the Laboratory staff has been trained to use CIVA. During the workshop theoretical bases of the software platform were given briefly, but emphasis was made upon practical use.  The tasks were prepared in a manner that allowed getting practical knowledge on all features of CIVA.  Besides, the tutor Roman Fernandez, who is development manager of EXTENDE company, was always there to get feedback on all questions arisen and ready to help with all issues that we had while task execution.  Thus, the workshop allowed TOLMI staff to have got basic knowledge on software CIVA features, opportunities and fileds of its application.

Besides, in June, 2016 there was software platform CIVA upgrade. It is important to notice that we received full support for making this possible, which is why the upgrade transition was trouble-free.

By far, software platform CIVA upgrade has been applied for the problem solving as follows:

  • choice of experiment optimal parameters in UT NDT field;
  • verification of algorithms for ultrasound imaging developed at  TOLMI;
  • verification of algorithms for computer tomography developed at  TOLMI.

Based on the challenges the Laboratory has faced, submodule Inspection Simulation has been actively used (Ultrasonic Testing module), submodule CT Simulation has been actively used (module Radiography-Tomography). CIVA has proved itself as powerful and universal tool for NDT result simulation.  The most important feature of the software is a wide choice of standard geometries of tested objects. If there is no suitable one, your own CAD-file can be uploaded. The second important feature defining utmost performance of platform CIVA is the possibility to use the vast majority of defects found in NDT practice. The third important feature is the ability to export data from the CIVA software package that makes it possible to work with it in other programs. Besides, while using CIVA all our questions have got complete and comprehensive  support from EXTENDE company staff. "
