RE: Bent Plate

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bending the plate at the suggested radius will work harden the plate at the
bend, producing a region at the bend that will only yield after a larger
bending force is applied.

Assuming that there is no cracking, the plate should be stronger at the
bend.

Actually, the loading varies along with the size of the angles.
I was just curious if the steel plate would lose any capacity after it is
bent during fabrication?
TIA,

What size angle was called for?  What's the loading?
