Proc. ASME. PVP2010, ASME 2010 Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference: Volume 3, 233-241, July 18–22, 2010
Paper No: PVP2010-25223
...-mail: email@example.com ABSTRACT This paper proposes a method to estimate the actual reaction loads in gimbal and hinged metal bellows expansion joints. Friction and some media pressure forces, which are not considered in current EJMA Standard calculations, are added to bellows spring rate to estimate...

... (EJMA) with regard to squirm are also reviewed and discussed. Finally, the results of the theoretical, empirical, and analytical investigations into the squirm phenomenon are utilized to identify some very practical solutions and recommendations to avoid the possibility of catastrophic failure of u...

... Manufacturers Association Standards (EJMA) with regard to squirm are also reviewed and discussed. Finally, a summary of the elastic-plastic finite element analysis of the u-shaped bellows is briefly described and compared against previously published theoretical works on the instability of shells of revolution...

... loads in the finite element analyses include both internal pressure and transverse displacements (i.e., translations perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the hose/bellows assembly). In addition, the guidance provided by the rules of the Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association Standards (EJMA...
