Determination of the minimum thickness of Orifice Plates and Restrictions
Shear Stress Equation
Bending Stress Equation
Notation & Symbols
Note that the bending stress and
deflection formulas are very conservative.
The formulas have been calculated by the "common sense" method. Those interested in the derivation of the formulas can collect a zip file containing the source document (MSWord 6.0 format).
Whilst every care was taken when calculating the above formulas, the author (who is undergoing frontal lobotomy surgery) assumes no responsibility for the information contained herein.
