Computer Simulation of X-Ray NDE Process Coupled with CAD Interface
Tools for computer simulation are helpful in NDE manyfold. A global conception of reliability in NDE can include among other procedures performance prediction by computer simulation. POD data of simulated defects can be calculated. Computer simulation gives the possibilities to optimize testing parameters, to make feasibility analysis for special testing problems, and to support the interpretation of testing results especially in case of complex component geometry. In this way simulation tools are valuable for planning and for evaluating of the examinations.
