Software for 3D-Axisymmetric Ultrasound Simulation
Wave2500™, is a stand-alone computer software package that generates
solutions to practically any 3D-axisymmetric ultrasonic (elastic wave propagation)
problem, simulating received waveforms under a variety of spatial and temporal
acoustic interrogations. Wave2500™ 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 Wave2500 and
look at several examples in Wave2500 Examples.
In addition you can download the program, and obtain a free time limited license
for full program evaluation and obtain commercial or academic licenses as well,

- Non-destructive testing and materials evaluation
- Ultrasound imaging and biomedical tissue characterization
- Transducer design studies
- Theoretical and applied research
- Full time domain solution to the 3D-axisymmetric viscoelastic wave equation.
- Arbitrary (pixel by pixel) material object description.
- Models longitudinal and shear propagation in solids and liquids, including
- Accounts for frequency dependent attenuation (viscous losses).
- Allows for a variety of (axisymmetric) source and receiver transducer configurations,
as well as arbitrary boundary conditions.
- Allows annular transmitter and receiver arrays to be defined (requires
manual selection of phasing (delays).
- Infinite (absorbing) boundary conditions, allowing the simulation of "infinite media.".
- Wave simulation "playback" including "single stepping" through simulation
- Extensive material libraries, including a wide range of solids, liquids and gases.
- Large selection of transducer apodizations, including Hamming, Hanning and Gaussian weighting functions (among others).
- Batch processing (making "unattended simulations" possible).
- Automatic multiprocessor capability can almost linearly speed up simulation.
- "Data Export" facility, making saving of simulation measurements even easier.
- Ability to define sources with "void" backings, making it easier to simulate sources located within an object.
- Ability to insert user-defined objects.
- Allows measurement of pressure, velocity and acceleration (in addition
- Option to select a higher order numerical algorithm allowing for fewer
- Ability to associate an arbitrary user-defined waveform for each source.
- "Point source" option.
