Cone Development Program

FastSHAPES® is the generic name for a suite of Plate & Sheet development software programs specifically designed for heavy fabrication where the main jointing technology is welding.

The CONE software module is for the development covers all cones from flat disc to cylinder in sheet and plate. It handles a variety of sizes and conditions between its degenerate extreme cases of a right circular cylinder to a flat annular ring. The setout dimensions for the cone are based on an infinitesimally thick surface having specified base and top diameters and axial height.

downarrowTYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Bulk Material storage bin hoppers,
Tank Roofs,
Flagpoles, WindTowers,
Flanges, flange segments, discs.
Basically ANY right circular conical structure with multiple strakes of varying thickness

downarrowTECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
The radial line development method is used and is exact, applied to right circular conical frustums.
Covers all cones from flat disc to cylinder.
Multiple segments, multiple strakes, multiple thicknesses.
Alternative specifications for joint locations.
