Geodesic domes chapter from Buckminster Fuller FAQ http://www.cjfearnley.com/fuller-faq-4.html. This has general information, and some dimensional information.

Tom Gettys Polyhedra Hyperpages http://home.comcast.net/~tpgettys/ Simple explanations, great graphics to illustrate

Geodesics at Dave Anderson's web site. good math, nice practical info on models and construction. http://w3.one.net/~monkey/geodesics/

Truncated Icosahedron
Edge: 0.4120 (inverse is 2.427)
Inner radius (to midpoint of edge) 0.9794
Outer radius (to vertex) 1.0120
Central Angle: 23.28
Volume for edge length = 1: 57.56 (cf. sphere radius = 2.395)
