This disclosure describes software and its framework for physics-based simulation of nondestructive evaluation (NDE). The software is comprised of core plugin interfaces for mesh formats, simulation metadata, and simulation results. This is paired with an implementation of an ultrasound inspection model as a demonstration case. The plugin software architecture allows for independent developability and testing of sub-modules for improved reliability and improved software validation & verification. The aim is to open-source the code to provide a vehicle for collaborative development by the Computational NDE community. The current software is a new implementation of the Ultrasound Simulation Code for 3D Curved Fiber Reinforced Composite Laminates LAR-19578-1
