Bent Plate

Attempting to bend a plate once again.


a plate, 109.473" wide by 57.5" tall ( standing vertically ) 3/8" width.

bent around a 151-1/16" Arc.


basically there are 9 plates around at 25.18" diameter circle.


All bolted together.


then a bent profile - angle iron around the outsides of both the top and bottom.

top angle is the edging of the tank, and to bottom angle is bolted to the tank foundation ( concrete )


it just does not want to bend.  


any ideas?  I figured this should have been made much easier than it was a couple releases ago, but no.  still a nightmare.



An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.
