# How do you calculate volume of a pipe elbow?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 09/12/2011

Simply find the length of pipe that makes the bend and the look up the volume in a place like Crane's Technical Paper No. 410. To find the length of the pipe, use the formula S=R(theta) with R being the radius to the center of the pipe and theta, the angle of the bend (in radians). S will be the length in the same units as R.

Thanks,

Michael

### How do you calculate the volume of oil in a pipeline?

If we assume that the pipe is completely full of oil, it would

If the pipe is not full, then multiply the volume by the
percentage of oil in the pipe. For example, if 50% full, then
multiply by .5.
If the pipe bends, take into account the different volume of the
bend. If the...
