## How is bend allowance calculated?

This bend allowance formula is used to determine the flat pattern length when a bend is dimensioned from 1) the center of the radius, 2) a tangent point of the radius (B) or 3) the outside tangent point of the radius on an acute angle bend (C).

## What is an offset bend?

An offset bend is a style of bend that is built independently of the 90° stub and the Back to Back bend and is an important bend to know when running conduit. It is common to shift the conduit a certain distance while continuing to run parallel in the same direction as the pre-shift portion of the conduit.

## What is the multiplier for a 22 degree bend?

Multipliers for Conduit Offsets

Degree of Bend Multiplier
10 degrees 6.0
22 degrees 2.6
30 degrees 2.0
45 degrees 1.4

## What is the bending radius of conduit?

The bend radius of conduit benders are manufactured to meet NEC code for minimum conduit bend radii. A 1/2-inch conduit has a minimum bend radius of four inches, 3/4-inch conduit is 4 1/2 inches and 1-inch is 5 3/4 inches.

## What is the radius of a conduit bender?

The radius is the distance from the center of that circle to the inside of the conduit. The circumference is the distance completely around the circle formed by the inside of the conduit and is equal to the radius times 6.28 (radius*6.28).
