PD539 – Bolted Joints and Gasket Behavior
Gain an overview of bolted joint fundamentals, whether gasketed or not, including behavior and troubleshooting. Participants will take a more detailed look at the latest development on gasketed joint assembly, torque factors, bolting patterns, and gasket behavior, tightness, selection and specification. This course is intended for practicing design and manufacturing professionals involved in the assembly of electro-mechanical hardware components of any size. Each participant will receive a copy of the book, An Introduction to the Design and Behavior of Bolted Joints, 3rd Edition, by John Bickford.
PD386 - Design of Bolted Flange Joints
You will learn the latest developments from the Pressure Vessel Research Council research on gasketed flange joints, as well as the new design rules being developed for the ASME Codes. Also included are examples on troubleshooting field problems and computer analysis illustrating the behavior of flanged joints under mechanical and thermal loads. Participants will receive the textbook, Gaskets and Gasketed Joints, by John H. Bickford.
PD577 - Bolted Joint Assembly Principles Per PCC-1-2010
This course will train and test bolting personnel at the supervisory level on the technological and practical problems of assembling bolted joints in large scale industrial applications. Participants enjoy interactive instruction, a student manual with resource materials (which includes a 1-year subscription to the most comprehensive on-line bolting library on the web), in-class demonstrations, and a half-day of practical application ending in a skills certification. Participants will also receive the PCC 1-2010 Guidelines for Pressure Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly, ASME codebook.

PD539: James Payne, P.E. established JPAC Inc. in 1981 to provide mechanical engineering consulting services, specializing in bolted flanged joints and gaskets. Previously with Exxon Research & Eng. Co., he engaged in the mechanical design and troubleshooting of piping systems and pressure vessels and participated in 12 plant start-ups around the world. He has been active in the bolted joint and gasket activities of the PVRC, ASTM, and ASME, is a contributing author to "Gaskets and Gasketed Joints" (Ed: J. Bickford, Marcel Dekker, 1998) and a founding member of the ASME Special Working Group on Bolted Flanged Joints. Jim is also a member of the Post Construction (PCC) and its Subcommittee on Flanged Joint Assembly, which is responsible for the Standard, “PCC-1 Guidelines for Bolted Flanged Joint Assembly.”
PD386: William Koves, Ph.D., P.E., ASME Fellow, has over 40 years of experience in the design and analysis of pressure equipment. Dr. Koves’ extensive ASME and PVRC committee involvement includes ASME B31 Mechanical Design Technical Committee (Current Chair), ASME B31.3 Process Piping Committee (Past Chair), ASME Post Construction (PC) Subcommittee on Flaw Evaluation (Past Chair), ASME (PC) Standards Committee and Subcommittee on Repair, ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPV) Subcommittee on Design Analysis, ASME BPV Subcommittee on Elevated Temperature Design, ASME Special Working Group on Bolted Flange Joints, Pressure Vessel Research Council (PVRC) (Past Vice Chair), PVRC Committee on Piping and Nozzles, PVRC Committee on Elevated Temperature Design (Past Chair), and PVRC Subcommittee on Shell Intersections (Past Chair). Dr. Koves is author of over 30 publications in the field; recipient of many committee, society and company awards; and holder of 24 US and 3 European patents.
PD577: David E. Lay, BA, MBA, is the Director of Training for Hytorc, the largest manufacturer of hydraulic bolting tools. He has been involved in the teaching of both the theoretical and practical aspects of heavy industrial bolting since 1992 and has been involved in corporate training for over 25 years. David is the author of several multimedia courses that have been adopted as teaching standards for union apprentice programs in the millwright and pipefitter trades across North America. He is an Affiliate Member of ASME and brings a practical view of complex problems that can be understood by workers and non-engineers, yet withstands the rigors of quantitative review. David is a member of the Post-Construction Standards Committee and the Bolted Flange Joint Subcommittee of ASME, which recently created the PCC-1-2010 “Guidelines for Pressure Vessel Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly” document.
