“For ordinary purposes, where overstraining is not likely to occur, or for large bolts, 8,000 to 10,000 lbs. per square inch may be allowed, for steel. For such work as steam and hy- draulic joints, where the ini- tial stress may be large, from 6,000 to 8,000 lbs. per square inch should be allowed, de- pending on the conditions and quality of material employed, and if shocks are liable to oc- cur, stresses as low as 3,000 to 4,000 are often preferable.”
IX. C onclusion When using the design-by-method solution to component selection, the user simply selects a gasket material not injuriously affected by the media and then chooses bolting from a list using a simple set of limit rules. When using ASME B16 flanges, the user simply selects a gasket material not injuriously affected by the media and then chooses bolting from a list using a simple set of limit rules. Design-by-formula and design-by-analysis re- quire greater detail and responsibility. The de- signing engineer has more decisions to make. By understanding the logic behind the Min- imum Required Bolt Load formula [MRBL], he/she can make better decisions. This paper is an offer to the civil and mechanical engi- neering community to self-analyze the classical mechanics of the ASME Minimum Required Bolt Load.
