Design of tube bends
|Publication Date:||1 May 2006|
|ICS Code (Pressure vessels):||23.020.30|
The design rules are applicable to tubes for welding, e.g. according to DIN 2605 and bent tubes.
The design rules take account  of the fact that in the case of loading of a tube bend due to internal pressure higher stresses occur on the inside of the bend and lower stresses on the outside of the bend than in the case of a straight tube.
