 This paper deals with the determination of the stress distribution at the fillet of a ANSI B16.5 flanges

attached internally to a hollow cylinder. A load parallel to the axis of the cylinder and of variable eccentricity acts on a bearing plate which rests

on the flange. The strains are measured by means of electrical resistance wire strain gages. The ratios of the mean cylinder diameter to the cylinder wall

thickness and of the mean cylinder diameter to the flange thickness are varied. The principal stresses at the fillet are given as functions of these

parameters. The experimental results are compared with the stresses calculated on the basis of an approximate theoretical solution for both an axial and an

eccentric load.


    Abstract Joining of steel pipes and pipe flanges use today the conventional method of fusion welding, where the flange is girth-welded onto the pipe.

However, fusion welding of flanges to pipes is associated with many disadvantages such as the final quality of the weld, degradation of the mechanical

properties of the base pipe near the heat affected zone, defects and cracks appearing in the weld, misalignments, to mention a few. The current study

proposes a novel pipe-flange connection to replace the fusion welding process of steel pipes with a method based on cold working. The method is based on that

the steel pipe is inserted into the neck of the flange, in which two circumferential grooves are manufactured. An expansion tool having two teeth is entered

from the open side of the connection and is expanded hydraulically such that the teeth deform the pipe and cold work it plastically into the grooves. This

will provide a strong joint between the flange and pipe. In this study the performance of the connection is maximized by optimizing the design of the flange

and the expansion tool.


    The use of bolted flange connections in the offshore wind industry has steeply risen in the last few years. This trend is because of failings observed in

other modes of joints such as grouted joints, coupled with enormous economic losses associated with such failures. As many aspects of bolted flange

connections for the offshore wind industry are yet to be understood in full, the current study undertakes a comprehensive review of the lessons learned about

bolted connections from a range of industries such as nuclear, aerospace, and onshore wind for application in offshore wind industry. Subsequently, the

collected information could be used to effectively address and investigate ways to improve bolted flange connections in the offshore wind industry. As

monopiles constitute an overwhelming majority of foundation types used in the current offshore wind market, this work focusses on large

ANSI welding neck flanges in the primary load path of a wind turbine

foundation, such as those typically found at the base of turbine towers, or at monopile to transition piece connections. Finally, a summary of issues

associated with flanges as well as bolted connections is provided, and insights are recommended on the direction to be followed to address these concerns.


    As per recent reports, the offshore wind sector could bring in £17.5 bn investment to the U.K. economy over the next few years after faster than

expected cost-cutting slashed subsidies for the technology by half [1]. On top of that, the baseline scenario for the United Kingdom’s installations by the

end of 2030 is to reach the capacity levels of 40 GW, four times the current state [2]. Additionally, the target of £100 per MWh set for the year 2020

regarding the levelised cost of energy (LCOE) of offshore wind was achieved in U.K. projects four years earlier in 2016 [3]. The above figures reinforce the

need for new technological developments that will enable the utilisation of larger and more efficient offshore wind turbines (OWTs). In this direction, one

of the most important concerns is the support structure of the turbine’s tower, which requires further study concerning not only the feasibility of future

installations, but also current problems that need to be better understood and addressed.


    OWT structures, which are quite large in thickness and diameter, operate in the hostile marine environment, where variable amplitude loads are constantly

applied on different parts of the structure [4,5]. In the offshore industry, grouted connections were initially used to charge the transition piece (TP),

with a certain overlap length, on the monopile (MP) foundations. Therefore, there is a tube-in-tube connection, wherein the space between the two tubes is

filled with grout (Figure 1) [6]. Towards the end of last decade, numerous grouted connection joints between large diameter monopiles and connecting tubular

steel transition pieces at the base of overlying support towers were found to be failing. For the majority of U.K. offshore MPs that experienced grout

cracking and failures, the issue was recognised to be primarily owing to the widespread absence of shear keys (or weld beads) on straight MP and TP surfaces.

Bending moments as a result of complex wind (which was the main difference in loading conditions compared with oil and gas platforms) and wave loading were

important design considerations that were not accounted for during design of grouted connections for OWTs. Furthermore, axial connection capacity was found

to be significantly lower than that assumed previously owing to the MP scale effect, lack of manufacturing and installation tolerances, and abrasive wear due

to the sliding of contact surfaces when subjected to large moments. Typical failure modes included dis-bonding, cracking, wear, and compressive grout

crushing failure.


    The number of bolts depends on the ANSI plate flanges radius and thickness,

type of tool used, size of the bolts, and predicted loads on the structure. These bolts serve the purpose of exerting a clamping force to keep the joint

together [20]. The behaviour and life of the bolted joint depend on the magnitude and stability of that clamping force. The preload is created by the

tightening process during the assembly of bolt and nut in the joint to provide enough clamping force on the joint. Therefore, the bolts need to be preloaded

at the assembly stage in the flange connection. An intuitive analogy would be to think of the bolts and the joint members as elastic parts. In that way, they

can be modelled as spring elements, where the bolts are stretched in their elastic region when tightened, in order to compress the joint. The joint has a

much stiffer elastic constant compared with the bolts, depending on material and dimensions.


    It is possible to consider the bolt as an energy storage device, which accumulates the necessary potential energy to clamp the joint and is subjected to

several environmental and operative conditions that may affect its behaviour [20]. The objective is for the preload on the bolt to be maintained at a certain

level, but, owing to a large number of influencing factors, it is almost impossible to achieve or retain the desired state. It must be noted though, that the

main concern is not the value of preload on the bolt, but maintaining the sufficient level of clamping force that holds the joint together. Moreover, if the

clamping force is too low, the joint could loosen and be subjected to more severe consequences owing to cyclic loads. On the other hand, if the bolt is

over-tight, it could exceed its proof load and may break under external load. In fact, during the tightening process, a torque is applied to turn the nut and

the bolt stretches. This operation creates preload in the bolted joint. This sequence of events, at any point, controls the preload. It is possible to

control the preload through torque or turn or stretch or through a combination of all of them. In all of the control strategies, the torque is used to

tighten the fastener even if other mechanisms are used to control the tightening. There are a lot of uncertainties in the relationship between the control

parameters like torque and the preload, which could be minimised by measuring and controlling the build-up of bolt tension. This is the motivation for

creating the family of tools called bolt tensioners. Using the bolt tensioner is nowadays a common practice during the installation of offshore wind

turbines.


    The employment of ANSI blind flanges connections for OWTs has considerably

increased in the past decade owing to the failures and subsequent economic losses associated with grouted connections. In this study, the issues and

opportunities associated with bolted flange connections have been thoroughly reviewed and discussed for application in the offshore wind industry. The key

conclusions drawn from this study are as follows:


    The advantages of bolted flange connections include the provision of direct load path through the primary steel alone, thereby avoiding slippage,

reducing steel requirements compared with grouted connections, the absence of curing time, and easiness to inspect and monitor the MP–TP connection.


    The challenges associated with bolted flange connections include material selection issues, short-term relaxation of bolts, issues associated with load

distribution in threads, and static failure of bolted flange.


    The main cause of short-term relaxation is the embedment that occurs mostly owing to surface irregularities as well as time-dependent creep deformation.


    The consequence of temperature differential can either increase or decrease the clamping force depending on the thermal expansion and contraction

coefficient of the materials employed in bolted connections.


    The setups associated with bolted joint such as washers, lubricants, coatings, and gaskets play a pivotal role in creating and maintaining integrity in

bolted joints.


    The failure modes observed in bolted joints include self-loosening, fatigue failure, corrosion, and galling.


    An expected trend in the bolted flange connection is the increased usage of tensioning tools compared with torqueing applications.


    Further studies in the offshore wind industry can enable the optimal use of ANSI

threaded flanges
connections in design, manufacturing, installation, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning phases.


    Ring flange connections for tubular towers, like those for wind turbines or chimneys, are subjected to significant fatigue loading. Next to the bolts,

the weld connecting the flange to the tower shell also needs to be checked against fatigue failure. The flange causes local bending moments in the shell,

which increase the meridional stress, i. e. stress concentrations occur. In this paper, the influence of geometrical imperfections on such stress

concentrations is quantified and the influence of flange geometry on resulting stress is investigated. Recommendations are given for flange dimensions and

the design procedure.
