Description / Abstract:

Bulletin 515 presents the work of Project 04-01 conducted under the auspices of the PVRC and related to the investigation of the effect of the nonuniform gasket contact stress due to flange rotation on the leakage behavior of sheet gasket materials. A numerical investigation coupled to some experimental findings obtained from PVRC Project 98-04 was conducted to determine the effective gasket width for raised face flanges and its variation with gasket type, flange flexibility and load
