bend radius

[′bend ‚rād·ē·əs]
(design engineering)
The radius corresponding to the curvature of a bent specimen or part, as measured at the inside surface of the bend.

bend radius

The smallest radius of curvature into which a material can be bent without damage.

These problems increase in severity as the bend radius is reduced.
Tests by 3M show each fold (1800 fold at 1 mm bend radius) impacts impedance at the fold location by approximately 0.5 Ohms (70 ps 20/80 percent rise time), which is well within the tightest impedance specification.
Slimflex patch cords feature a bend radius of only 7.5mm -- as opposed to 40mm for traditional patch cords -- dramatically reducing the risk of failure due to accidental over bending where it is most likely to occur.
It is flexible, with a small bend radius, and installs easily on barbed fittings, according to the company.
Proprietary silicone cable is naturally more flexible than round PVC or stiffer flat PTFE cables, which allows for a tighter bend radius, weight/space savings, greater current carrying capacity, noise reduction and longer flex life.

From the various comments - from respected greyhound vets in Australia and the UK - it seems apparent to me that building a new track on a greenfield site with a bend radius of 40m is highly questionable.
The PAGE-flex SBF[TM] offers a bend radius of 1/2 that of conventional fluoropolymer braided hoses, coupled with superior kink and vacuum resistance.
The cable is constructed with low dielectric materials that improve bend radius over longer distances in small cross-sectional areas.
The company said that Quadwire, a 40Gb/s optical link for data centres and high-performance computer clusters, features a parallel 4x10Gb/s optical bi-directional link, meeting the needs for increased data rates in longer lengths (up to 100m), while offering a lightweight solution and small bend radius. In addition, it uses Finisar's VCSEL (vertical cavity surface emitting laser) array technology, which offers high reliability and performance.
