Numerical EFIT simulations for ultrasonic NDT applications – Past, present and future

Simulation-based optimization of transducers and ultrasonic set-ups

In the last two decades the role of numerical simulations in ultrasonic NDT changed from a pure preplanning tool to an active instrument for simulation-based optimization of transducers and ultrasonic set-ups during development. In the future we will see an even more active role of numerical simulations being directly embedded in the NDT system itself. This paradigm shift is strongly driven by modern industry 4.0 and machine learning applications where experimental and numerical results are merged for a better system performance, superior defect characterization and for closing gaps in incomplete data sets used for deep learning techniques.

Dr. Frank Schubert (Group Manager of Ultrasonic Sensors and Methods at Fraunhofer IKTS) presents different NDT applications in which Elastodynamic Finite Integration Technique (EFIT) simulations played an important role during development. The corresponding project leaders explain the goals of their projects and how EFIT simulations helped to improve the NDT system.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
