Radius of curvature of a bimetallic strip – V.MohanKumar

Radius of curvature of a bimetallic strip

When two different metal strips of different thermal expansion coefficients are attached together, it will be termed as the BIMETALLIC STRIP and will undergo a bending when a thermal load (temperature raise) is applied. The amount of bending that the bimetallic strip undergoes is represented by the Radius of Curvature (R).
