Track clearance calculator

Postby Sjay » Thu Apr 22, 2021 8:47 pm

Hi all thought I'd share this tool for helping to work out gradients and clearances.

http://www.carbidedepot.com/formulas-trigright.asp

It's an online Trigonometry Calculator. I simply type in to side c the length of track I have and into angle A the required gradient and press calculate. And then side a is the height of the clearance.

Similarity if you want to work out the gradient enter height a and length c and you can work out the gradient.

I'm hopeless with a calculator* so I find this site very useful.

*I only have a maths degree :P
