how to design wedge for small diameter pipe inspection

I want to use PA to inspect small diameter pipe, the diameter is 1 inch,the thickness is 5mm,the coder is said for conventional UT use 72degree shear wave and front length must less than 5mm,I want to use 10L16 PA probe,but I don't know how to design a wedge for the inspection.
Anybody like to give me some advice?
Thanks
