Bending and torsion are the principal sources of relief from thermal expansion in most piping configurations. However, secondary influences, viz., (a) axial deformation, (b) shearing deformation, (c) beam-column action, and (d) shortening owing to the difference between arc and chord, may become significant in configurations one dimension of which greatly exceeds the other two. In the following, an analysis, including these secondary influences, is made of the most fundamental configuration, an ell shape.
