Tight Bolted Joints using EN 1591 Design Method

Design bolted flange joints according to the tightness level requirement by applying the theoretical and practical (case studies) knowledge of the European calculation standard series EN 1591

Objectives:

Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the gasket parameters measurements as specified in EN 13555,
  • Understand and apply the calculations developed in EN 1591,
  • Design bolted flange joints in accordance with EN 1591

Date:

18th – 20th October 2022 (Tue-Thu)

Time:

15:30 – 18:30 (GMT+8) Singapore / 08:30 – 11:30 (GMT+2) Paris

Pre-requisites:
