The project

The ANR PRCE project HIPOTHEC (for HIgh-order POlyhedral meTHods for Eddy Current testing simulations) has been funded in the 2023 generic call. This is a collaboration between EDF R&D and 4 academic partners, coordinated by Inria (Lille). The HIPOTHEC project aims at developing accurate and flexible numerical solvers for eddy current testing (ECT) simulations, based on high-order polyhedral methods. The target application, of industrial interest, is the non-invasive detection of flaws within steam generators in nuclear plants.
