It is normal to put notches ID & OD on the actual part for this type of inspection rather than make a special cal. block.

Your specification/procedure should be consulted.

Your stansard call for 2mm flat bottom hole of side drill hole ? in eithe case you need
reference block to set up sensitivity.

Subject line of posting is Shear Wave. FBH's are almost always for straight beam. SDH's are normally used for weld inspections.
Notches are used for angle beam examinations of various product forms including large forged rings like you describe. Unless you have additional material to make a cal block from it is common to put the notches in the actual product and if necessary machine them off after testing.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
