Not by a long shot! But I didn't realize that wrinkle-bending was done on smaller pipes - I've never seen smaller adapters with the divits for wrinkles. The only wrinkle-bend adapters I've seen were for 3-inch pipe... learn something new everyday I guess. Press-bending is bad enough, I can't imagine wrinkle-bending anything.the wrinkles themselves increase the resistance alot. the disturbances on the inside of the bend does not promote laminar flow
I don't want to sound like an ass, but you mean turbulence - we are dealing with flow.the wrinkles increase friction
That's the way to go if you can weld. If you go this route remember, JCWhitney is your friend.if you are gonna weld anyways, get some mandrel bent 90's and cut the angle you need and weld away.
At normal atmospheric pressure (inside the pipe still counts), the flow of air can be treated as fluid dynamics, in which case, friction is the correct term.I don't want to sound like an ass, but you mean turbulence - we are dealing with flow.
Regardless of what you treat it as, it's still air, not fluid. While the similarities between them from a physics standpoint are vast, and the two are in many ways comparable, turbulence is the appropriate word to use when discussing airflow.the flow of air can be treated as fluid dynamics, in which case, friction is the correct term.
So you're calling a stream of exhaust gas, a body? That's a stretch to put it mildly. It looks to me like you're just going out of your way to contradict me. But hey, whatever works for you.Friction n. Physics. A force that resists the relative motion or tendency to such motion of two bodies in contact.
