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

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
