Abstract

To assist with the design and validation of testing procedures for NDT, add-on modules have been developed for AutoCADĀ® 2000. One of the modules computes and displays ultrasonic 3D ray tracing. Another determines paths between two points, for instance a probe and a target or two probes. The third module displays phased array operational modes and calculates element delays for phased array operation. The modules can be applied to simple or complex solid model components.
