Wave2000® / Wave2000® Plus
Software for Computational Ultrasonics
Wave2000® / Wave2000® Plus, is a stand-alone computer software package that generates
solutions to practically any 2D ultrasonic (elastic wave propagation) problem,
simulating received waveforms under a variety of spatial and temporal acoustic
interrogations. Wave2000® / Wave2000® Plus allows the user to explore any number of
experimental configurations, to determine "optimal" transducer arrangements,
and to examine sensitivities of measurements to numerous variables of interest.
To find out more, please review the basic applications and features shown below,
read more about the software in About Wave2000® and
look at several examples in Wave2000® Examples.
In addition you can download the program, and obtain a free time limited license
