Calculate equivalent radius approximation for strip

Since R2020a



r = strip2cylinder(w) calculates the equivalent radius for a cylindrical approximation to a strip cross section.


collapse all

Calculate the equivalent radius of a cylinder based on a strip of width 80 mm.

r1 = strip2cylinder(80e-3)
r1 = 0.0200

Calculate the equivalent cylindrical cross-sections radii using the strips of widths 80 mm, 88 mm, and 96 mm.

r2 = strip2cylinder([80e-3 88e-3 96e-3])
r2 = 1×3
