Stair Tangent for iPhone
Circular Stairs Functionality
This function will calculate circular stair dimensions based on the inside radius, line of travel dimension and the width of the tread at the line of travel. It has stair tread width building code error checking for the inside tread width (cord of arc) of 8". The width of the tread at the line of travel is used first, to determine the width of the inside radius tread. By changing the width of the tread at the line of travel, it will also change the circular stair rotation angle. The circular stairs can have 2 to 20 plus stair treads.
Use the inside radius dimension and the calulated Dimension X and Y to layout the circular stair rotation angle.
