SHEET BENDING FORMULAS:

LT = D1 + D2 + BA (1)
LT = L1 + L2 – BD (2)
D1 + D2 + BA = L1 + L2 – BD (3)
BA = (π/ 180°) (θ) (R + K ∙ T) (4)
K=t/T (5)
Common assumption:
K = 1/3 (R < 2T)
= 1/2 (R ≥ 2T)
From Machineries Handbook 25th Edition:
K = 0.35 (Soft Brass & Copper)
= 0.41 (Half-hard Copper, Brass, Soft Steel & Aluminum)
= 0.45 (Bronze, Hard Copper, Cold-rolled Steel & Spring steel)

Tan (A/2) = (L1 – D1) / (R + T) (6)


D1 = L1 – (R +T) (Tan (A/2)) (6A)
D2 = L2 – (R +T) (Tan (A/2)) (7)
Substitute (6A) & (7) to (3):
BD = 2(R + T) (Tan (A/2)) – BA (8)
