## What is the take up on a 90 degree bend?

Stub: The shortest part of a ninety degree bend. Take-Up: The amount that must be subtracted from the desired stub length of a ninety degree bend to ensure that the bend is accurate.

## How much are you going to subtract if you are going to bend 1/2 EMT conduit?

1. Determine the height of the offset/stub up, for this example it is 11″ (Figure 1). 2. For this example a 1/2″ pipe will be used, so subtract 5″ from the height of the offset.

## How do you find the gain of a 90 degree bend?

Here’s the method to calculate the gain: Take the bending radius and add half the O.D. of the conduit. Multiply the result by 0.42.

## 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).

Bend allowance.

Angle 90
K-factor 0.33
Thickness 10
Bend allowance 20.89

## What is the formula when calculating for the shrink on an offset?

To find out where to place the first mark on the conduit, multiply the measured Offset Distance to clear the obstacle by the tables Shrink/Inch that will occur to the conduit after all the bends are made due to that offset distance or: (Offset Distance) X (Shrink/Inch) = Total Shrink. Example: 6” X .
