Simulating Ultrasonic NDT Inspections of Anisotropic Welds

Ultrasonic inspections of welds form part of weld quality control and are crucial to ensure safety in a wide range of industries.

Identification and characterization of any discontinuities within a weld is critical to prevent material or component failures. However, the ultrasonic inspection of welds is challenging due to their anisotropic material properties and heterogeneous structure. These features cause scattering and refraction of the ultrasonic wave that make the identification of defects more difficult than isotropic materials.
 
The use of synthetic data generated through engineering simulation to represent weld structures can provide large testing scenarios to evaluate an ultrasonic inspection performance.
 
This webinar explores the use of cloud based engineering simulation with OnScale to efficiently evaluate and optimize non-destructive testing (NDT) of welds.
