When excessive pipe deformation occurs, it may impair the joint performance and affect the strain in pipes. Based on the information by PIPA, there is a 5% reduction of flow capacity when the pipe is deflected by 15%. Hence, pipe deflection has impact on flow capacity but its effect is not significant.

This question is taken from book named – A Self Learning Manual – Mastering Different Fields of Civil Engineering Works (VC-Q-A-Method) by Vincent T. H. CHU.
