residual bend

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
The natural form that a section of coiled tubing string will take if spooled from the reel and allowed to rest without any tension applied. The residual bend results from the plastic deformation imparted as the string is spooled around the radius of the reel and guide arch.
