ZeMat3: Numerical simulation, defect catalog, imaging and evaluation

Project coordinator: Dr. Martin Spies

Nowadays, many different inspection methods are available where each of them is applied depending on the type of underlying defect. Besides detection and localisation of defects, also quantization becomes more relevant. The characterization of defects by nature, geometry and orientation plays an important role for the reconstruction procedure. To cover the huge amount of testing parameters like material, component geometry, probe charateristics and testing method, an accurate and flexible simulation is needed. Therefor, a 3D EFIT algorithm for complex geometries will be modified and implemented on a cluster computer. Based on this method, a detailed data catalogue can be established. Moreover, suitable algorithms for feature extraction can be developed and evaluated.
