Annotation This entry in the proceedings series from the July 2003 conference discusses both computer methods for the analysis of bolted joints and the results of recent experimental investigations. Topics include the tightening sequence for bolted flange joint assembly, the effect of helical coil repair on the fatigue life of studs, the calculation of bolted flange connections of floating and metal-to-metal contact type, finite element analysis of the thermal and mechanical behaviors of bolted joints, and a web-enabled database for gasket parameters.
