UTSim is a software package developed to help plan and refine ultrasonic inspections for complex shaped components. The software reads 3D solid‐model CAD representations of the components. Virtually any shape or complexity of object can be loaded and examined using the ultrasonic ray tracing tools in UTSim. For many applications, the software can also be used to model ultrasonic beam propagation as well as the response from flaws within a component. This presentation will give an overview of UTSim and its features and will demonstrate examples of its ultrasonic simulation capabilities.
