A programme of tests has been carried out to study the behaviour of bolted GRP pipe flanges under pressure. The influence of bolt tension has been established, and the information acquired in this way has been used to validate a Finite Element model of the flange. This model may be used to predict leakage behaviour of a flanged joint.
