Results of pipe bend analysis, Part IV: flexibility factors of pipe bends with flanged tangents
Australian Atomic Energy Commission
An equivalent flexibility factor is defined for pipe bends with flanged tangent pipes under pure in-plane bending, and numerical values of this factor are presented for a range of 90o and 180o bends with various tangent lengths.
