All,

__Center to end distance of the elbow__

· The standard radius** **of bending of the elbow as per ASME B16.9 is two types

1. long radius

2. short radius

· long radius means the radius of the center line circle of the elbow is 1.5*D (where D is the nominal pipe size)

· short radius means the radius of the center line circle of the elbow is 1*D (where D is the nominal pipe size)

· to calculate the center to end distance for elbow with any angle (θ°elbow ) consider figure 1 (shown below)

a: the center to end distance of the elbow (to be calculated)

R: The radius of bending of the elbow

θ: the elbow angle(degree of bending)

tan (θ/2)= a/R

a = R * tan (θ/2)

in case of long radius R = 1.5 * D

So, a = 1.5 D * tan (θ/2)

NOTES:

· θ in degrees

· D in inches

· In case of elbow 90° the equation will be simplified to (a = 1.5*D )

· To convert “a “ to SI units multiply by 25.4

Figure 1
