## Terms Used in Sheet Bending Calculator

### Bending Angle (θ)

Bending Angle (θ) is the angle mearsure from horizontal plane line to outside of the bending plate. it is denoted by θ. You can refere standard reference input image shown in this calculator for your better understanding to this angle value.You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.

Bending Radius (R) is inside radius at which bending of the plate take place. bending radius is also important parameter too small bending radius is causes to developed crack on the plate so choosing bending radius is also needs attention normaly it is equal to thickness for small thickness plate. it generaly depends upon bending configuration. You can refere standard reference input image shown in this calculator for your better understanding to this angle value.You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.

### Plate Length (L)

Plate Length (L) is outside length of bending plate. It is denoted by L1 and L2 for left and right plate length respectively.You can refere standard reference input image shown in this calculator for your better understanding to this angle value.You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.

### Material K factor (K)

Material K-Factor values is depends upon type of materials and the thickness of the bending material. you can enter material k-factor is known for your material or you can also refer to material k-Factor Chart by clicking on material k-factor chart link. Normaly it is in the range of 0.33 to 0.55. for most of the application 0.55 is used.

### Plate Thickness (T)

Plate Thickness (T) is thickness of the bending material. it is denoted by T. You can refere standard reference input image shown in this calculator for your better understanding to this angle value.You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.
