jack halyard shakahachi scale measurement (23) shakahachi scale measurement 02 Oct 04

I'm interested to know whether shakahachi ( Japanese, end-blown bamboo flutes) have a standard scale measurement. I'm wondering whether it's possible to make one or something similar, using an Irish whistle scale.
Does anybody know a formula for measuring out that scale for a given length and diameter of tubing, or for a scale in a given key?
