RE: Bent Plate

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We use "Bent Plate" all of the time.  Typically, for odd dimensions, but,
increasing, for normal deck edge.  Bending work hardens the plate a little
but does not noticeably change the material properties.   (Steel is ductile
hence the modulus of elasticity is constant below the yield stress.)
