Introduction to the NDT Simulation Software CIVA
Wednesday, June 27 2018 at 19H00
Pre-registration is required. Please email Gilles Rousseau ( to register.
As a first activity in 2018, the CINDE chapter of Quebec is pleased to announce a conference whose theme focuses on the simulation of non-destructive testing methods and techniques with the CIVA software.
The presentation will focus on the CIVA software and its applications. CIVA is used to simulate test methods and inspection in the following areas:
  1. Ultrasound (conventional, TOFD, PAUT, FMC/TFM)
  2. UT data analysis
  3. Guided waves
  4. Radiography and X-ray tomography
  5. Eddy current
CIVA is used by many companies around the world to assist in the design of control methods and their qualification. You can obtain more information on the CIVA software and its modules by consulting the website of EXTENDE at the following address:

The conference will be presented by Fabrice Foucher, Business Manager at EXTENDE. Fabrice has been involved for many years in the simulation of NDT methods and participated in the foundation of EXTENDE in 2010 in order to widen the diffusion of the CIVA software and provide a consulting service to companies in the context of the development and qualification of controls.

As a second activity in 2017, the CINDE chapter of Quebec is pleased to announce a conference on ultrasound. The meeting is organized in collaboration with the Quebec Welding Institute.
The presentation will cover two ultrasonic technologies for the inspection of welded structures: network probes (PAUT *) and diffraction (TOFD **).
These two techniques are very effective in detecting and characterizing defects and are also complementary.
The presentation will be divided into 5 stages:
1) Basic Principles of Ultrasonic Inspection and Data Representation
2) Introduction to Network Sensor Inspection
3) Introduction to Diffraction Inspection
4) Examples: Bridge over Orinoco (Venezuela) and Anti-flood gates lagoon of Venice
5) Training and certification available
The city of Québec is the world's center in the field of ultrasonic inspection instruments for industrial use. For more than 30 years, the technological center in CND (non-destructive testing) in Quebec City has been innovating by developing and marketing state-of-the-art ultrasonic technologies. During the 1990s, equipment using network sensor technology appeared with a retail price of about $ 250k, limiting access to high-end applications such as steam turbines and the nuclear sector.
Today, network probe technology has grown to the point where manufacturing costs have dropped dramatically. All manufacturers of portable ultrasound devices today offer instruments using network probes and this technique is being replaced with conventional ultrasound.
With the commercialization of portable devices, the use of network probes has spread in the welding sector. Inspection procedures have been refined and today inspection of welds with a network probe has become a very effective method of visualizing defects in the volume of the weld. In parallel with the development of inspection procedures, training programs and inspection standards have evolved to make the network probes technology available to technicians and engineers working in the CND and welding sectors.
