Software for Computational Ultrasonics
Wave2000® Plus, is a stand-alone computer software package that
generates solutions to a wide range of 2D ultrasonic (visco-elastic and piezoelectric
wave propagation) problems, simulating received waveforms under a variety of
spatial and temporal acoustic interrogations. 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 a visco-elastic only version of the software in About Wave2000® and
look at several examples for Wave2000® in Wave2000® Examples.
In addition you can download Wave2000® Plus, and obtain a free
time limited license for program evaluation or obtain commercial or academic
licenses as well by registering with us
and logging in. Two examples illustrating the piezoelectric and orthotropic
features of Wave2000® Plus are included as part of the installation
on your PC. Information on pricing is also available.
Please Contact Us to discuss your intended application(s),
for any other additional information you would like, or to order your copy
of Wave2000®Plus today.
