The Gasket Volume calculator computes the volume of a circular gasket based on the thickness of the gasket (gT) and the surface area.  gasket.pngcircular gasketThe surface area is calculated as the difference between two circles with diameters of d1 and d2.

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:

  • (gT) Gasket Thickness
  • (d1) Inner diameter of the gasket
  • (d2) Outer diameter of the gasket

Gasket Volume (Vg): The calculator computes the volume of the gasket in cubic inches.  However this volume can be automatically converted to any other volume units (e.g. cubic millimeters) via the pull-down menu.

The Math

The equation for the gasket volume is:
        `V_g = pi * gT *[ (d_2/2)^2 - (d_1/2)^2]`

where:

  • Vis the volume of the gasket
  • gT is the thickness of the gasket
  • d2 is the outer diameter
  • d1 is the inner diameter

  • RATIOS AND LENGTHS:
    • Bore (diameter): Compute the Bore Diameter based on the engine displacement, number of cylinders and the stroke length.
    • Bore Stroke Ratio: Compute the Bore Stroke Ratio based on the diameter of the bore and the length of the stroke.
    • Compression Ratio: Compute the Combustion Ratio base on the minimum and maximum displacements of the cylinder at the beginning (1-Induction) and compressed (3-Power) portions of the combustion cycle (see animation)
    • Displacement Ratio: Compute the Displacement Ratio based on the volumes at the beginning and end of the stroke.
    • Rod Length Stroke Ratio: Compute the Rod and Stroke Length Ratio base on the two lengths.
    • Stroke (length): Compute the Stroke Length based on the total engine displacement, number of cylinders and the bore.
