This is not torsional rotation. In-plane squirm is defined as a shift or rotation of the plane of one or more convolutions such that the plane of these convolutions is no longer perpendicular to the axis of the bellows. They seemed too high.

Litigation Support 3 post s. The Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association is an organization of established manufacturers of metal bellows type expansion joints.
Materials Degradation and Corrosion 16 post s. A new E-book version of the new 10th Edition Standards can be downloaded to your PC, laptop or tablet. Ejma uses Sym yield strength at room from cert not tensile. Becht Software 4 post s. Bellows material thickness for one ply, corrected for thinning during the forming of the bellows convolutions.
Response to Stanard Question.
Subscribe to this blog post Unsubscribe. Single Bellows Axial Vibration Constants were revised. Fatigue life calculations were greatly enhanced and simplified.
EJMA 10th Edition
Process Consulting 10 post s. Safety 10 post s. Becht Nuclear 37 post s. Calculated maximum pressure in PSIG before stansard joint may squirm because of inplane instability. Perhaps there was confusion over which code was applicable. Available Positions Apply On-line. Why was the EJMA stresses higher?
atandard With bellows, design for an excessive number of cycles can unnecessarily compromise other design aspects, such as design with respect to eejma pressure and column stability resistance to squirm. Total length of the expansion joint including the possible pipe ends. EJMA carries out extensive technical research and testing on many important aspects of expansion joint design and manufacturing.
Bellows convoluted length Lb plus the length of the bellows tangent ends or necks. Modulus of Elasticity at design temperature, unless otherwise specified, for material.
EJMA was founded in to establish and maintain quality design and manufacturing standards. The distinction of thin versus thick bellows has been added. Bellows are rated by the manufacturer in terms of maximum allowable axial displacement per convolution, ec and ee.
This condition is predominantly associated with high meridional bending stress at the root and crest of the convolutions. AND it does not explain why his allowables don't jive. Standadr Life is theoretical and is dependent upon the maximum stress range to which the bellows is subjected.

General Interest 4 post s. Angular rotation is occasionally referred to as rotational movement and is shown in LBS per degree. Any change in these factors will result in a change in the life of the Expansion Joint. Historically, designers have put large factors of safety on the number of design cycles for bellows, which was in part justified since there was no design margin in the EJMA fatigue curve. Expansion Joints Exhaust Flanges.
To order click here. When sfandard this curve, it should be recognized that appropriate design margins are already included, and they should not also be included in the specified number of cycles.
