Angular Deflection

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

angulat deflection FC 1AAngular 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.

Angular Deflection formula

\(\large{ l = \frac {\pi r \theta}{180} }\)

Where:

\(\large{ \theta }\)  (Greek symbol theta) = angular deflection

\(\large{ C }\) = connector / coupling

\(\large{ l }\) = hose length

\(\large{ r }\) = minimum centerline bend radius for constant flexing

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi
