Description

In a collaboration between Cowley County Community College and Iowa State University, unique capabilities at the institutions are being combined to develop an NDE simulation teaching tool. The tool, based on XRSIM [1–4], will allow physically accurate radiographic inspections to be simulated using a computer aided design (CAD) model of a part. XRSIM was developed primarily as an industrial problem-solving tool; however, it has much to offer as a teaching tool. Cowley County Community College is leading the effort to develop the course material that will allow instructors to use XRSIM to teach students the fundamentals of radiography.
