Advance Your Capabilities in Phased Array Research for Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) with Vantage® Research Ultrasound and the University of Bristol’s BRAIN Software
As researchers in the materials science and NDE disciplines have begun employing phased array imaging using Full Matrix Capture techniques, they have been hampered by the lack of development tools. To address this limitation the scientists in the Ultrasonics and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) group at the University of Bristol (UK) developed BRAIN (BRistol Array INspection), a software package for NDE analysis and inspection development.
BRAIN, provides highly sophisticated post-processing characterization and visualization tools in an easy to use package. The software package enables full-matrix and other advanced imaging techniques and analytical modules that are agnostic to the array technology. Working with Verasonics, Dr. Paul Wilcox and Dr. Anthony Croxford have now made the BRAIN software compatible with the Verasonics Vantage platform, combining the power of their software with the flexibility and speed of the Vantage system. The University of Bristol’s BRAIN software is available at no cost; contact Verasonics if you are interested in using the BRAIN software with the Verasonics Vantage Platform.
