Standard edition was, of necessity, somewhat brief and covered only The EJMA TM Standards are intended for application to metallic bellows expansion joints. The Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association is an organization of a metal bellows expansion joint manufacturers. It was founded in to create and maintain a set of standards for quality expansion joint design and manufacturing. The EJMA standards are used worldwide as a reference for the proper. EJMA BOOK OF STANDARDS: Standards of the Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association, Inc. – Includes one copy of Practical Guide to Expansion Joints.

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.

The Tenth Edition standards combine the knowledge and experience of the standad manufacturers of expansion stqndard into an invaluable reference document.

Fitness for Service 9 post s. The Authority on Expansion Joints The EJMA Standards are recognized throughout the world as the authority on the proper selection and application of metallic bellows type expansion joints for safe and reliable piping and vessel installation.

The Difference Between ASME B31.3 Appendix X and EJMA Fatigue Curves for Bellows?

Modulus of Elasticity at design temperature, unless otherwise specified, for material. Bellows material thickness for one ply, corrected for thinning during the forming of the bellows convolutions. Process Consulting 10 post s.

Bellows vendors will often quote two different cycle lives for their bellows.

With bellows, design for an excessive number of cycles can unnecessarily compromise stxndard design aspects, such as design with respect to internal pressure and column stability resistance to squirm.

Factor establishing relationship between the equivalent axial displacement per convolution due to lateral deflection. Bellows meridional bending stress due to deflection.

Project 2 post s. Zero length is shown for single bellows. This condition is predominantly associated with high meridional bending stress at the root and crest of the convolutions.

To order click here. It is calculated as either Lb or Lu plus length of pipe ends. Axial force or pressure thrust is caused by the internal pressure of the bellows. Bellows meridional membrane stress due to deflection. Friday, 26 July He is President of Becht Engineering Co.

Calculated maximum pressure in PSIG before expansion joint may squirm because of column instability. Bellows tangent circumferential membrane stress due to internal pressure. Excessive internal pressure may cause a standarc to become unstable and squirm.

And the allowale stresses can be different which different codes. Definitions in the Nomenclature section 1.

Available Positions Apply On-line. Can this be true? Becht Software 4 post s. Was he stancard the first time? Axial Working Spring Rate: A new E-book version of the new 10th Edition Standards can be downloaded to your PC, laptop or tablet.

Tightness of bellows, bands, and rings due to dissimilar material ztandard rates is considered. The main and most important result was that the calculated bending stress due to deflection could be considerably reduced.

EJMA 10th Edition

The Sa he gave me, for 70F and F were and respectfully. Bending Working Spring Rate: Fatigue life calculations were greatly enhanced and simplified.

This is calculated on the full effective cross section of the bellows known as the effective area. Bellows convoluted length or live length. It is used in specific design calculations to relate U-shaped bellows convolution segment behavior to a simple strip beam. EJMA was founded in to establish and maintain quality design and manufacturing standards. Single Bellows Axial Vibration Ejmaa were revised.

EJMA 10th Edition is the most current edition and supersedes all previous publications. Bellows convoluted length Lb plus the length of the bellows tangent ends or necks. I cannot imagine that for simple applications the bellow tube Always has to be x-rayed or DPI tested.

Due Diligence 5 post s. When using 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. The distinction of thin versus thick bellows has been added. Angular rotation is occasionally referred to as rotational movement and is shown in LBS per degree. Why was the EJMA stresses higher?
