Cylinder equivalent width approximation

Since R2021b



w = cylinder2strip(r) calculates the equivalent width of a strip approximation for a cylindrical cross section.


collapse all

Calculate the width of the strip approximation to a cylinder of radius 20 mm.

w = cylinder2strip(20e-3)
w = 0.0800

Input Arguments

Cylindrical cross-section radius, specified as a scalar or vector in meters.

Example: 20e-3

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Equivalent width of strip, returned as a scalar or vector.

Data Types: double
