BS EN 1591-1:2001+A1:2009 Flanges and their joints. Design rules for gasketed circular flange connections. Calculation method

BS EN 1591-1 defines a Calculation method for bolted, gasketed, circular flange joints. Its purpose is to ensure structural integrity and control of leaktightness. Where permitted, the Calculation method is an alternative to design validation by other means e.g.

– Special testing;
– Proven practice;
– Use of standard flanges within permitted conditions.
