Bending print that page

In engineering mechanics , bending (also known as flexure ) characterizes the behavior of a slender structural element subjected to an external load applied perpendicularly to a longitudinal axis of the element. The structural element is assumed to be such that at least one of its dimensions

Bending (metalworking) print that page


In press brake forming, a work piece is positioned over the die block and the die block presses the sheet to form a shape. [ 1 ] Usually bending has to overcome both tensile stresses as well as compressive stresses . When bending is done, the residual stresses cause the material to spring

Spoon bending print that page


Spoon bending attracted considerable media attention in the 1970s when some people claimed to have the ability to cause such events by paranormal psychic means. The most notable was Uri Geller , who performed by bending metal spoons as well as metal keys and several other objects and materials

Circuit bending print that page


Emphasizing spontaneity and randomness, the techniques of circuit bending have been commonly associated with noise music , though many more conventional contemporary musicians and musical groups have been known to experiment with "bent" instruments. Circuit bending usually involves dismantling

Tube bending print that page


Form bound bending procedures like “press bending” or “rotary draw bending” are used to form the work piece into the shape of a die . Straight tube stock can be formed using a bending machine to create a variety of single or multiple bends and to shape the piece into the desired

Steam bending print that page

Steam bending is limited in the degree of bend it can achieve, particularly for thick members. Also, not all species of wood steam bend well. [ citation needed ] It weakens the wood slightly and can leave residual stresses which may cause breakage or spring-back over time. [ edit ] See

Plastic bending print that page

The limiting plastic bending strength M r can generally be thought of as an upper limit to a beam’s load–carrying capability as it only represents the strength at a particular cross–section and not the load–carrying capability of the overall beam. A beam may fail due to global or

Bending moment print that page


A bending moment exists in a structural element when a moment is applied to the element so that the element bends. Moments and torques are measured as a force multiplied by a distance so they have as unit newton-metres (N·m) , or foot-pounds force (ft·lbf). The concept of bending moment

Bending stiffness print that page

The bending stiffness E I of a beam (or a plate ) relates the applied bending moment to the resulting deflection of the beam. It is the product of the elastic modulus E of the beam material and the area moment of inertia I of the beam cross-section. According to elementary beam theory
