The ultrasonic NDT community has been aware for several years that a different Index Point is found for angle beam search units when comparing aluminum IIW type calibration blocks with steel blocks of identical design. Brissaud and Kleiman [1,2] and Watson [3] have discussed anisotropy texture as a possible cause of the differerence.
