Simulation of the 2008 Ultrasonic Benchmark Problems Using UTDefect
Paper in proceedings, 2009
The computer program UTDefect is used to solve some of the 2008 ultrasonic benchmark problems. UTDefect is a program for simulation of ultrasonic testing with applications within the nuclear industry in mind. Scattering from various types of defects, like a side-drilled hole and a flat-bottom hole, is modelled using solutions that are essentially exact. For the benchmark problems the results obtained from UTDefect are in fairly good agreement with the experimental data from CEA.
