Simulation significantly reduces NDT inspection development costs

A leading UK tier 1 aerospace supplier required digital engineering expertise within a project aiming to accelerate the development and deployment of composite material and process technologies. Combining expertise in simulation, optimisation and sensitivity analysis, the Centre for Modelling and Simulation (CFMS) could significantly reduce the non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection development costs.

CFMS was requested by a tier 1 aerospace supplier to use our expertise in simulation, optimisation and sensitivity analysis to aid the development in an ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) method for composite components.

This project demonstrated the ability to develop a high fidelity model of reality, enabling us to gain real world insight into the NDT method for composite plate inspection techniques. To identify all defects and evaluate the NDT process without simulation, all test cases scanned would have to be created with an extremely high level of precision, which would be prohibitively costly and time consuming.
