Ultrasonic benchmarking with UTdefect
Paper in proceedings, 2010
UTDefect is a program for simulation of ultrasonic testing with emphasis on applications within the nuclear power industry. The entire testing process, including the ultrasonic transmitter, the receiver, and scattering from various types of defects of simple shape, is modelled. The basic idea behind UTDefect is to use solutions to the elastodynamic wave equation that are esentially exact. For the 2009 benchmark problems the results obtained from UTDefect are in most cases in fairly good agreement with the experimental data from CEA. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
