Acronym n/d-pyp
Name n/d-pyramidal prism, line || n/d-prism
Segmentochoron display  
Circumradius sqrt[1/4+1/(4-1/sin2[π d/n])]

general polytopal classes:
segmentochora  
Especially tepe (n=3, d=1)   squippyp (n=4, d=1)   peppyp (n=5, d=1)   stappyp (n=5, d=2)   hippyp (n=6, d=1)  

The height formula given below shows that only 2 < n/d < 6 is possible. The maximal height would be obtained at n/d = 2 with upright latteral triangles but then degenerate base, the other extremal value n/d = 6 would generate a height of zero.
