Flange calculations and
flange calculation software
Calculation is important regarding analysis of flanged joints. In any case, the assembly / mounting staff needs a
- tightening torque (pre-stress) value.
Additionally, the integrity of the joint has to be demonstrated by
- stress analysis
and – if there are frequent load transients – fatigue analysis. Additionally, a
- tightness analysis
has to be performed. Because of the complexity of the behavior of bolted flanged joints, only an iterative calculation procedure can lead to reliable results.
Flange calculations as a service
Flange calculations by are tailored to customers needs. If analytical approaches are convenient we use analytical calculation procedures, as provided by
- VDI / DIN
If the application is complex
- Finite Element Analysis
is used as a tool. In all cases, our experience and our philosophy is basis of the analysis.
With the software TEMES fl.cal a reliable tool for the calculation of bolted flanged joints based on the state of the art is available. It includes all actually relevant analytic calculation procedures, as provided by
- VDI / DIN
The compliance of the software with codes and standards is certified.
Comprehensive databases are part of the package:
- geometries of flanges, bolts, gaskets
- materials of flanges, bolts
- gasket characteristics
expands these databases regularly; additionally, the user can create his own extensions to these databases.
