Design of Bolted Flange Joints in GRP Pipes

 

Jointing, Sealing and Welding # 1985 York

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.

While pipe bursting is a well accepted in-line replacement method for gravity sewers and drains in North America, it presents several limitations. The size of the equipment needed to burst pipes 200 mm or greater in diameter is too large to fit inside a typical 1.2 m diameter manhole. Also¸ the force needed to...
