    Surface Area formula credits: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BydeQ6BPlVejRWt6NlJLVDl0d28/edit?pli=1

    Ballparking with small values(1m height, 1m major-axis, 1m neck-to-base distance) gives a value of SA very close to that of a right circular cylinder. The ID_EHY has to be fixed though for analyze to work on this.
