Simulation of Ultrasonic Non-Destructive Testing of Composite Materials

This white paper provides an overview of how different NDT techniques can be modeled and simulated, highlighting the need for modern CAE tools that enable an efficient exploration of all variables involved.

This white paper discusses how ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) can be efficiently and effectively optimized, thus reducing costs and risks, with the use of accurate engineering simulations.

With OnScale software, research and design engineers can run multiphysics simulations of many ultrasonic inspection techniques that include piezoelectricity, electrical circuits, structural mechanics, acoustics, and heat transfer phenomena.

OnScale is fully cloud-enabled, empowering engineers with the high-performance computing (HPC) resources needed to explore their design space quickly and with ease. Semiconductors, MEMS, sensors, medical devices, and 5G and IoT RF systems are among the many applications that can benefit from design and optimization with OnScale.

Testing Simulation for Composite Materials

A key consideration for materials used in the aerospace industry is to ensure the strength of aircraft components, while limiting weight. For this reason, aerospace design challenges have driven major advances in composite materials, which offer both increased mechanical strength and weight savings.

This is epitomized by modern aircraft such as the Boeing 787, which contains 50% composite material by weight. In addition to their favorable strength-to-weight ratio, composites are also quickly becoming the material of choice in aerospace applications due to their durability, resistance to corrosion and fatigue, and the potential they offer for new design solutions.
