PZFlex is a Finite Element Analysis package specifically designed for simulating ultrasonic transduction and wave propagation. It allows time domain simulation of complex ultrasonic inspections to be simulated and includes an electromechanical solver for analyzing transducers.
PZFlex is used in various NDE/NDT applications, from modeling transducers to predicting acoustic wave propagation through test structures. Substantial work has been carried out regarding the propagation of Lamb waves in plate and pipe structures and the waves’ interaction with defects inside the structures.
PZFlex is also well suited to aid the NDE/NDT community in its application of imaging techniques originally developed by the biomedical industry, such as multi-element arrays and acoustic beam steering. Traditional analytical methods are inadequate for industrial studies of this type, especially when they carried out on more advanced structures and materials, such as carbon fiber composites and anisotropic welds.
