STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Uncompressed gasket thickness = (100*Width of u-collar)/(100-Minimum Percentage Compression)
hi = (100*b)/(100-Ps)
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Width of u-collar - Width of u-collar is definied as the measurement or extent of u-collar from side to side. (Measured in Millimeter)
Minimum Percentage Compression- Minimum Percentage Compression is defined as the least percentage of compression.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Width of u-collar: 4.2 Millimeter --> 0.0042 Meter (Check conversion here)
Minimum Percentage Compression: 16 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
hi = (100*b)/(100-Ps) --> (100*0.0042)/(100-16)
Evaluating ... ...
hi = 0.005
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.005 Meter -->5 Millimeter (Check conversion here)
5 Millimeter <-- Uncompressed gasket thickness
(Calculation completed in 00.000 seconds)

Width of u collar in terms of uncompressed gasket thickness
Width of u-collar = ((Uncompressed gasket thickness)*(100-Minimum Percentage Compression))/100 Go
Uncompressed gasket thickness = (100*Width of u-collar)/(100-Minimum Percentage Compression) Go
Minimum percentage compression
Minimum Percentage Compression = 100*(1-(Width of u-collar/Uncompressed gasket thickness)) Go

Uncompressed gasket thickness = (100*Width of u-collar)/(100-Minimum Percentage Compression)
hi = (100*b)/(100-Ps)

## What is Uncompressed gasket thickness?

Uncompressed gasket thickness is gasket thickness which remains same after pressure is applied on flange.
