Length: 1 days
Bolted flange joints are essential components for design and operation of pressure vessels and piping. This one-day course provides a fundamental understanding of how to design bolted flange joints and predict their resulting behaviors. Practical examples and case studies are shared with discussion of variables that can affect flange joints along with some remediation options.
This course specifically reviews the different flange types and facings used in pressure vessel and piping industries, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. Participants are introduced to the various ASME codes and standards applicable to pressure vessels, piping and flanges and how to use them to design for internal and external loads.
Participants will receive the textbook, Gaskets and Gasketed Joints, by John H. Bickford.
You Will Learn To:
- Identify the ASME requirements and methodology for flange design
- Design and analyze flange joints for pressure and external loads in accordance with ASME codes and standards
- Identify the parameters that can prevent bolted flange leakage
- Describe the fundamentals of flange and gasket behavior
