Providing a fundamental understanding of the design and behavior of bolted flange joints, essential components for pressure containment, this course covers the latest findings from the Pressure Vessel Research Council research on gasketed flange joints. It also outlines new design rules being developed for the ASME codes.
Participants will receive the textbook, Gaskets and Gasketed Joints, by John H. Bickford.
You Will Learn
- The latest ASME requirements and methodology for flange design
- How to design and analyze flange joints for pressure and external loads in accordance with the latest
- ASME Codes and Standards
- Identification of parameters that can affect flange leakage
- Fundamentals of flange and gasket behavior
