Minimum bending radius of wiring

Unread post by paulw » Sun May 13, 2018 12:21 pm

I don't know if this was discussed before as I cannot find anything.

I saw a photo of an engine wiring once for an aircraft for sale with very tight bends in the wiring and it worried me a bit as I know from a previous life that there is a minimum radius to adhere to.

I found this article specifically related to aircraft now and thought I will post it here.
The same however apply to all cables and all applications. ... gradation/

More detail: ... adius.html
Don't believe what I post, research what I post....
They have a book on how to take my money away? When did this happen......
