The development of K-Flange is an example. Flange design has been a common problem in engineering for a long time. The ASME Code design rules are based on a classical analytical elasticity solution for the flange ring, tapered hub and neck. However, experienced engineers have been aware that there are other aspects of flange design other than stress. The flexibility of the flange joint is important and simply meeting Code requirements does not guarantee a joint that will be leak tight. The research by the Pressure Vessel Research Council and development of the tightness based gasket constants provided the technical means to take flange design to the next level. Pi Engineering Software developed K-Flange as the First commercial software in the world to evaluate flange stress, rotation and predicted leak rate based on the PVRC gasket constants. Pi Engineering Software was also the first to develop an analytical solution for a flange joint under external moments.
