UT for Inconel material

how can i to calibrate UT set for the CS to Inconel material without Inconel reference block.
I can use the T1/V1=T2/V2 formule for longitudinal wave and normal probe ,but how can i use it for shear wave and angle probe?
i want to test inconel pipe/thk :18 mm/8 in/butt weld

If the welding electrode is Inconel or SS base,the weld is coarse grain and its need to special reference block and special probes(Longitudinal Angle Beam Probe to achieve high S/N ratio).
So you cant test it easily as carbon steel welds. I'm wondering how you are going to test it with out reference block?????
Check ASME sec 5, Art 4, T-451 and Non mandatory appendix M(General techniques for Angle Beam Longitudinal wave calibration)

Research and Applications Development For NDT

The Research and Applications Development (RAD) group is a newly formed team within Acuren dedicat
ed to tackling challenging inspection problems. Our focus is the development of novel, field deployable, advanced inspection techniques for use in cases where standard NDT methods are ineffective. We don't wait for new innovations, we engineer them. From concept to commissioning.

UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2

UCI hardness tester NOVOTEST T-U2 is is used for non-destructive hardness testing of: metals and
alloys by scales of hardness: Rockwell (HRC), Brinell (HB), Vickers (HV); non-ferrous metals, alloys of iron etc., and using five additional scales for calibration; with tensile strength (Rm) scale determines the tensile strength of carbon steel pearlitic products by automatic recalculation from Brinell (HB) hardness scale.

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.
