Abstract

This paper presents an empirical method for determining the axial load distribution generated by the V-band clamps around the flanges. The method utilizes a hydraulic fixture and uniquely designed flanges. The load is measured through strain gages and a pressure transducer. Tests were conducted successfully on a V-band and a nonuniform distribution of axial load was obtained, fitting well with the previous theoretical and finite element studies about the non-uniform loading distribution of load.
