Heating and cooling cause pipe length changes.
The coefficient of expansion of DUOPEX WATER composite pipes is 0.026 mm/m x k
|Thermal changes in length||Example Temperature|
Pipe length changes are caused by heating and cooling.
The coefficient of expansion of DUOPEX composite pipes is 0.026mm/m x K.
|differential ΔT||50 K|
|Pipe length L||5 m|
|Coefficient of expansion a||0.026 mm/m.K|
|Linear expansion ΔL||6.5 mm|
|ΔL||= a x L x ΔT
= 0.026 mm/m.K x 5 m x 50 K
= 6.5 mm
