03.202018TWI uses CIVA and Gekko to build UT Techniques Category "NDT Consulting and Techniques" | No comment

Dr. Channa Nageswaran, PAUT L3 and R&D Team Manager in the Non -Destructive Testing Integrity Management Group of TWI performed a webinar (available online on the TWI YouTube Channel).

Among others, some of the statements of this presentation mention that:

  • Using simulation results to aid in inspection development must be approached cautiously
  • Verification of key results by experiment should be a key component of such activity
  • The CIVA platform is used extensively by TWI and has been validated for specific cases
  • There is confidence in using the CIVA simulation platform for TRLs as TWI has undertaken some validation and published evidence

Watching it, you will be able to have an overview of Simulation vs. Experiment.

As concluded in the presentation, Modelling is a powerful tool to help in the development of techniques using these probes.
