NDT4INDUSTRY – Recent developments in advanced NDT

Simulations are a standard tool in ultrasonic NDT. In future the role of numerical simulations will be more active, by being directly embedded in the NDT system. Industry 4.0 and machine learning applications will merge experimental and numerical results for a better system performance, superior defect characterization and for closing gaps in incomplete data sets used for deep learning techniques. Dr. Frank Schubert presents different NDT applications in which Elastodynamic Finite Integration Technique (EFIT) simulations played an important role during development.
