What is CIVA?  

CIVA is a simulation software developed specifically for nondestructive testing applications. Ultrasonic (UT), eddy-current (ET) and radiography (RT) inspections can be simulated. The high-performance and versatile software is the culmination of more than fifteen years development.

CIVA is a versatile tool that can be used to design/verify/optimize inspection procedures, to design/specify/optimize probes, and to perform sensitivity and parametric studies. Using CIVA, it is possible to quantify the response to expected defects, and different inspection strategies can be compared with regard to detection and sizing capability. CIVA is a powerful training tool. CIVA is also a tremendous help in understanding what are often complex signals.
