Text of Taylor Forge - Modern Flange Design Bulletin 502

Foreword:American Spiral Pipe Works was organized at the first of thecenturyto producespiral riveted pipe. This uniqueproduct waswidely used inwater supplysystemsfor cityaquaducts, surfacemining, and penstocks in this country and overseas. Aseriousproblemdeveloped with this pipewhen flanged joints were re-quired. At that timethe flangesweremadeof cast ironandwereoftenbrokenduringshipment andfabrication. J. Hall Taylor andhisstaffsolvedthisproblembydevelopingprocessesandequip-ment to manufactureasuperior, virtuallyunbreakableproduct-theforged flange. Thenunder a newname, Taylor Forge andPipeWorks, the company pressed on to become aleader in flangemanufacturing.They did not stop with that, but topped their achievement bydeveloping analytical flange design formulas for industry andCodeuse. Professor E. O. Waters of Yale Universityspearheadedthiswork and joined Mr. Taylor to co-author the technical papers whichled into the Taylor Forge publication Modern Flange Design.Industry immediatelyaccepted this convenient systemof flangedesignandusedit worldwide.This up-datedversion of Modern Flange Design carries on thetraditionwith askillful blendof data, graphics, andtext. Wesin-cerelyhopethatthisissuewill provetobethemost useful of all.1Table of ContentsForeword 1Introduction 4Side-step Designing 5-6Part ADesigns 7-12INTEGRAL.

Rulesforanalyzing identical pairsof suchflanges were firstpublishedinMandatoryAppendix II of the 1971Editionof theCode. Theserulesgivea method ofanalysis that satisfies all conditions of equilibrium,providesforcompatibilityof rotationand transla-tion between elements (hub and flange), andaccountsfor the radial effect of pressureactingon the pipe, huband flange. The flanges designedbytheseruleswereidentifiedas "Part B"todis-tinguishthemfrom"Part A" flanges.Thetheoryusedasthebasisfor therules intheCode for identical Part Bflange pairs was ex-tendedonaconsistent basis toalsocover non-identical flanges. Because such an analysis islaborious, a simpler method suitable for analyzingbothidentical andnonidentical pairs wasdevel-oped and publishedasASMECode Case1828:"A Simplified Method for Analyzing Flat FaceFlangeswith Metal-To-Metal Contact OutsidetheBolt Circle." TheCasewasapprovedbyCouncilJanuary 9, 1978, after therulesforPart B flangeshadbeen transferredfromMandatory AppendixIItoNonmandatoryAppendixY intheSummer '77CodeAddenda.The simpler rules of Code Case 1828 resulted fromdesigning for tangential contact between theflanges at their outside diameter. Alsomany of theassumptionsandcharts that apply equally toPartA orPart B flanges wereused.It is beyond thescopeof this Bulletinto coverthe design of flat face flanges inmetal-to-metalcontact, however, the work leading up to theCaseisfullydocumentedintheopen technical litera-ture.

Thisworkis part of thequote and includes priceand delivery, but fulldimensional details are held pending an order.In the case where only adesign calculation isrequired, this can be furnished for a nominalcharge that depends on the complexity of theproblem and engineering/ computer time required.For any Part Adesign calculation, thefollowinginformationisessential: typeof flange shell or pipe dimensionsdesign pressure and temperature flange materialandthisinformationis veryhelpful:governing codemedia containedshell or pipematerialbolt and gasket materialfacing style-if specified corrosionallowance-ifrequiredIf thedesignmatesexistingequipment,give com-plete details of facing, drilling, andO.D.OPTIMUM INFORMATION INPUT IS ATRUE ECONOMV-IT SAVES GUESTIONS, GUESSES, AND GOOFS.Youmay sidestep CodeCase 1828 FlangeDesigncalculation by using our design/computer serv-ices.The calculation work for Code Case 1828 re-quiresmuchmoreeffortthanPart Abecausetheflanges behave differently. One flange is influ-enced strongly by the other since they are incontact outsidethe bolt circle; accordingly, cal-culated stresses are meaningful only when theinteraction is considered in the analysis. As aresult, whenwearerequestedtobidona customjobandperformcalculations, it isessential thatinformation on both flanges of the pair bepro-vided.We require a sketchof theassembly show-ing all dimensionswhich areknownor must beheld.
