Custom transient finite element method and ray tracing hybridization strategies for ultrasonic testing modelling

Abstract

The transient spectral element method (SEM) is a specific high order finite element method that is particularly accurate and fast with a low memory footprint, hence enabling 3D ultrasonic testing simulations on a standard PC. However, particular care in its settings and hybridization with a semi-analytical solution remains a major challenge when seeking for both practicality and performance. A natural hybrid strategy consists of coupling a field calculated by ray tracing in the defect-free object to a SEM subdomain wherein the perturbation is enclosed, then synthesizing the signal with a reciprocity argument. The difficulty is to define the suited coupling strategy when the flaw response interacts with the back wall. In a highly heterogeneous medium, it may even become necessary to widen the numerical domain to the entire thickness of the inspected object and, therefore, to ensure the performance of the SEM through a custom discretization strategy. Here we present different customized uses of the SEM for practical ultrasonic inspection applications and discuss how they complement the performancee ray tracing solution.
