2]]/2EI] Rd[theta] (3) where: A = cross sectional area of wall E = Young's Modulus of beam material [alpha] = thermal expansion coefficient I = second moment of area, cross section of wall L = length of straight section of the wall R = Radius of curvature of bend [DELTA]T = Temperature change [theta] = Angle measured from the point of tangency between bend and straight section of wall The boundary condition at B requires that the horizontal deformation of the wall at this location be zero.
On the other hand, if profitable pooling were to occur at a point of tangency, or where the HH-type indifference curve is steeper than the LL-type, then both types could be attracted to a profitable alternative that is also incentive compatible with respect to the HL-types.
