Revolutionizing Simulation: How Polytec uses Cloud-Based HPC for Virtual Non-Destructive Testing using Finite Element Analysis of Elastic Wave Propagation

Overview

Simulation of NDT applications has often been viewed as computationally expensive, however, with the advent of cloud engineering simulation, these computational barriers are removed. An industrial case study from Polytec, a provider of advanced 3D laser interferometry measurements capture and visualization of ultrasonic inspections, demonstrates how cloud-based FEA provides the needed accuracy to simulate traveling wave measurement across a thin plate and crack detection.
