Minimum Radius for 6 coupled wheel arrangement

Gentlemen, A while ago, I believe on the old web site one of the Leyland members gave a spread sheet detailing minimum radius for a given fixed wheelbase and the amount of side play required. I seem to have lost this from my computer (Damn Kids again). Is it possible for this member to put it back on this site as it would be useful to all and solve a problem for me.
Many Thanks Tim

It was me! I'm away on holiday at the moment, but, unless someone else knows how to retrieve it in the meantime, I could re send it when I get home.

The spreadsheet shows the versines for various track radii and length of wheelbase. This figure nees to be accommodated by a combination of gauge widening (within the recommended limit) and cumulative sideplay in the coupled axles. I hope this makes sense, if not please e-mail me on jandt@collyers.plus.com
