TUBE BENDING RADIUS
|Publication Date:||1 March 1961|
SCOPE: This standard establishes basic design criteria including preferred bend radii, straight lengths between bends, flattening and surface conditions in the bend area. Also included is a table of preferred tubing sizes and wall thicknesses and a formula for determining a minimum bend radius for a given tube diameter.
PURPOSE: To standardize upon a basic series of tube bend radii, including the minimum allowable in critical applications such as in aero-space propulsion systems.
