Wire Mesh - Wire Spacing, Opening Size, and Wire Diameter
 
 
 
 
The relationship between wire diameter, wire spacing and opening size can be expressed mathematically as follows:
 
S = D + O
O = S - D
D = S - O

where:
S = Wire Spacing
D = Wire Diameter
O = Opening between the wires (Opening Size)

To Compute Open Area of wire mesh:



where:
A = % Open Area
O = Opening between the wires (Opening Size)
D = Wire Diameter
