Use this tool to easily calculate the dimensions and angles needed for bending pipes accurately.

## Pipe Bend Calculator

This calculator helps you determine the length of the pipe required to make a certain bend. Enter the pipe’s diameter, the bend’s radius, and the desired bend angle.

### How to Use

- Enter the pipe diameter in inches.
- Enter the bend radius in inches.
- Enter the bend angle in degrees.
- Click “Calculate”. The result will display the length of the bent pipe in inches.

### How It Works

The calculator uses the formula:

`Bend Length = (Bend Angle / 360) * 2π * Bend Radius`

This formula calculates the arc length of the bend, which is the part of the pipe that will be bent.

### Limitations

Please note that this calculator assumes a perfect bend and does not account for material stretching or other physical nuances in manufacturing. Ensure to allow for some margin and consult a professional for critical applications.
