Angular Deflection

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Angular deflection is when a flex connector is bent on it's centerline.  One end of the hose assembly is deflected or bent with the other end remaining parallel.flex connector 4

formula

\(l= \frac {\pi r d}{180}\)

Where:

\(l\) = live hose length

\(\pi\) = 3.1416

\(r\) = minimum centerline bend radius for constant flexing (inches)

\(d\) = angular deflection (degrees)
