Wedge delay is the time that sound travels in the wedge only, total beam delay is the duration of time from when pulse is generated to the time that pulse enters the specimen, to make it simpler, USUALLY total beam delay is wedge delay + couplant delay if you are performing contact testing.

beam delay(time delay) is an electronic delay of the pulse energy in other to achieve a particular beam formation pattern while wedge delay is simply the determination of the distance or time of travel in the wedge in other to accurately determine the beam exit point from the surface of the wedge(this help for proper location of flaws).
