Segments of a ring gasket 
20090920 

From Robert: I am in the process of making an Excel spreadsheet in which our sales
team just needs to enter the outside diameter, inside diameter, and
number of segments to price ring gaskets that are too big to fit on a
sheet of material and need to be cut into segments. With your help I
was able to create a spread sheet that can calculate the Chord lengths,
and Segment height on a single gasket segment. I am now stuck trying to
come up with a formula to figure out the height of the second segment
when it is stacked on the first segment, then use it to add more
depending on the quantity of segments needed. I have an illustration
below showing 2 segments (of a gasket that was segmented into 4 pieces)
stacked together. I need to find a formula to get the dimension from
"A" to "B". Answered by Harley Weston.
