Expansion loop
Steel pipe expansion loop with nominal diameter "dn" shedule "SCH" and length "Linst"
The given length "Linst" refers to an installation at a temperature "tinst".
The pipe will expand with respect to its length "Linst", due to the temperature rise t = tmax - tinst
The maximum temperature could be reached due to the pipe temperature and solar radiation,
or due to fluid flowing through it.
Similarly, the pipe will shrink due to low temperatures and clear sky nights.

La dilatacin de la caera produce una deflexin "Linst/2"


en el punto "C" del a brazo izquierdo "AC" de la lira.
Lo mismo ocurre en el brazo "BD" de la lira.
A

En los extremos "C" y "D" de la lira se produce una flecha


f = Linst/2
Esta flecha se debe en parte a una flexin de los brazos
y en parte al giro en los codos en "A" y "B".
Estas dos flechas se deben a la fuerza "P" originada por
la extensin de la caera. Esta fuerza produce una flecha
"f1" debida a la flexin del brazo y una flecha "f 2" debida
al giro del codo.
