Large Radius Bend

Related Topics

Large radius bend radius may be R>35D. Central bend angle should not exceed 90 degrees (more...). See also prestressed long radius bend.

When these elements are used in Start-Base, an automatic stability check is performed, and in the event of insufficient stability an error message is displayed in the "errors and warnings" window. In addition, stability can be checked using Start-Elements "bend stability".
