Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to revisit the pressure reduction effect in smooth piping elbows under moment loading. A brief review of historical studies and an explanation of the origins of the effect is followed by an overview of an extensive series of detailed finite element analyses, carried out by the authors, which re-examines the well known Rodabaugh and George design factors that are widely used in piping Design Codes.
