Description

Bringing together decades of research findings into a single, coherent source, this practical guide discusses industrial, automotive, and chemical gasket types and materials from selection, installation, and testing to applications and problem-solving and prevention methods. The coverage includes, but is not limited to, the complex mechanical and leakage behavior of gaskets and gasketed joints; instructions for choosing proper gaskets based on hands-on experience and a computer-based selection approach; evaluation of mehods for testing gaskets; comparisons of flanged joint design rules for the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code using the Taylor Forge form; and more.
