## Coefficient Value for Thickness of Flange Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
k = ((1)/((0.3)+(1.5*Wm*hG)/(H*G)))
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Maximum Bolt Load - Maximum Bolt loads model tightening forces or length adjustments in bolts or fasteners. (Measured in Newton)
Radial Distance - Radial Distance from Gasket Load Reaction to Bolt Circle is defined as distance between whisker sensor's pivot point to whisker-object contact point. (Measured in Millimeter)
Hydrostatic End Force - Hydrostatic End Force is the force which is result of internal fluid pressure in the system, and tries to push the flanges apart. (Measured in Newton)
Diameter of Gasket at Load Reaction - Diameter of Gasket at Load Reaction on the downside, thinner gaskets will not seal as many flange irregularities as thicker gaskets, and require flatter flanges. (Measured in Millimeter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Maximum Bolt Load: 1000 Newton --> 1000 Newton No Conversion Required
Radial Distance: 30 Millimeter --> 0.03 Meter (Check conversion here)
Hydrostatic End Force: 65 Newton --> 65 Newton No Conversion Required
Diameter of Gasket at Load Reaction: 500 Millimeter --> 0.5 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
k = ((1)/((0.3)+(1.5*Wm*hG)/(H*G))) --> ((1)/((0.3)+(1.5*1000*0.03)/(65*0.5)))
Evaluating ... ...
k = 0.593607305936073
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.593607305936073 --> No Conversion Required
0.593607305936073 <-- Coefficient Value for Thickness of Flange

Thickness of Flange
Thickness of Flange = (Diameter of Gasket at Load Reaction)*(((Design Pressure)/(Coefficient Value for Thickness of Flange*Permissible Stress))^0.5)+Corrosion Allowance Go
Thickness of Elliptical Head = (Internal Design Pressure*Major Axis of Ellipse*Stress Intensification Factor)/(2*Design Stress*Joint Efficiency) Go
Thickness of Flat Plate Cover or Head
Thickness of Flat Plate Head = (Edge Fixity Constant*Diameter of Plate)*((Design Pressure/Design Stress)^0.5) Go
Circumferential Stress (Hoop Stress) in Cylinderical Shell
Circumferential stress = (Internal Pressure*Mean Diameter of Shell)/2*Thickness Go
Longitudinal Stress (Axial Stress) in Cylindrical Shell
Longitudinal Stress = (Internal Pressure*Mean Diameter of Shell)/4*Thickness Go
Bolt Circle Diameter
Bolt Circle Diameter = Outside Diameter of Gasket+(2*Nominal Bolt Diameter)+12 Go
Outside Diameter of Flange using Bolt Diameter
Outside Flange Diameter = Bolt Circle Diameter+2*Nominal Bolt Diameter+12 Go
Height of Formed Head = Outer Shell Diameter/2 Go
Height of Formed Head = Outer Shell Diameter/4 Go
