This seems very simple unless I'm not understanding the question?

BTW... your either saying circumference when you're actually meaning diameter, or you need to find the diameter from the circumference C=D*PI

All you're asking for is the angle of each measuring device vector relative to the center of the cylinders, "NOT" the position of the measuring device.

It becomes a simple triangle problem... so what do you know?

You know the lengths of all 3 sides of each triangle (one for each sensor).
1.) The first two are the radii of the cylinders, you know this ahead of time (diameter/2)
2.) The third length is the difference between the 2 measurements from the individual sensor

Knowing the three lengths, and being unconcerned with orientation/position you simply trig out the 3 angles of the triangle.
