Cone Layout Tool ver E5.00













Description












Cone Inputs:









LOD [in]  OD of the large pipe






SOD [in]  OD of the small pipe

ATAN(Y/L)

=





BL [in] =

SQRT(Y^2+L^2)

=





DL [in] =

SQRT(BL^2+t^2)

=





G [rad] =

ATAN(t/DL)

=





GB [deg] =

Degrees(G+B)

=





Y2 [in] =

(t*cos(Radians(GB)))/2

=





DDO [in] =

(LOD2*t)/2+Y2

=





DDI [in] =

SOD/2Y2

=





Layout Dimensions:







Ri [in] =

DDI/(sin(Radians(GB)))

=





Ro [in] =

DDO/(sin(Radians(GB)))

=





Theta [deg] =

(DDI/Ri)*360

=













This design tool
calculates thickness corrected cones where the inside of the large end



touches the inside of the
large pipe (ie, the large pipe and cone have the same




thickness) and where the
outside of the small end touches the outside of the




small pipe. Adjust the length of the cone as required
to get the desired cone angle GB.












Ri, Ro and all trim lines
share the same origin. Brake press
bend lines also pass through



the origin.
