Abstract

In this paper a method of predicting the axial load generated by V-section band clamps, taking into account both circumferential and transverse friction has been proposed. An experimental method of determining this axial load is also demonstrated and the theoretical predictions are shown to be accurate. The effect of this axial load on the turbocharger components making up the V-band joint has been investigated with the aid of finite element analysis. It has been demonstrated that this load can make a significant contribution to the level of stress in these components.
