force of deflection bimetallic strips

A bimetallic strip is used to convert a temperature change into mechanical displacement. The different expansions force the flat strip to bend one way if heated, and in the opposite direction if cooled below its initial temperature. The metal with.

Note that in determining deflection or force developed by a bimetal strip, the width of the strip does not affect the result. In other words, the width.

Thermostatic Bimetal is a composite material, usually in the form of a strip or sheet, made changes in temperature deflection rate and mechanical force rate.

In most flat bimetallic strip applications, the bending is employed in the transverse it can be used in any other temperature induced force and displacement.
