An Introduction to Bolted Joint Integrity

The initial part of this one-day technical workshop is based on the ASME PCC-1-2013 (HT73) Training Fundamentals, (HT74) Power Equipment Supplemental Training, (HT75) Heat Exchanger Supplemental Training and (HT76) Joint Supplemental Training, providing a practical appreciation of bolting issues. This is followed by a hands-on demonstration of equipment and a factory tour.

The afternoon is split into two sessions. The first session concentrates on how design codes, such as the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code and EN1591, handle flange-bolting calculations. The second session looks at systems to manage joint integrity and the software tools available to carry out bolt load calculations.

Participants may submit questions on engineering, technical and operational issues faced in their jobs in advance of the course. Attendees' understanding of the course will be assessed through question and answer periods (including preformatted questions throughout), and workshop assignments at the end of the course.

  Who should attend?  
Or any other personnel involved in the specification, design, operation, and maintenance of pressure containing plant, mechanical, or structural joints, rotating equipment, pipelines or piping systems
