EMULATION OF POD CURVES FROM SYNTHETIC DATA OF PHASED ARRAY ULTRASOUND TESTING
Paper in proceedings, 2012

Reliability of non-destructive techniques (NDT) is traditionally quantified by experimental determined probability of detection (POD). Such multi-parameter variability studies require a significant amount of experiments for each application verified, making them extremely costly. Reducing the need of experimental data by simulations requires both a verified simulation model and a procedure for effective computer experiments. Here synthetic POD curves for ultrasonic phased array testing have been generated using simSUNDT for signal amplitude simulations and a procedure to emulate response variability by predictive (meta) modeling and Monte Carlo simulations.
