Call for entries from companies and consortia interested to undertake a study that aims to produce design and fabrication guidance for the optimisation of large diameter flange connections.
The main objectives of this work are to:
- Produce design and fabrication guidance for the optimisation of large diameter flange connections.
- Determine the impact of more relaxed flange fabrication tolerances on the design of flanges and bolts, with an aim of allowing relaxed fabrication tolerances to reduce costs.
- Analyse the effectiveness of shimming for compensation of flange tolerances.
