The Result > Flange > Flange Check command will display the Flange Analysis dialog, enabling the user to apply several different flange analysis methods on every flange in the model. Standard flange data can be recalled from dimension and material libraries. For nonstandard (user-defined or NS) flange dimensions and material allowable stresses can be provided by the user.
The Flange Analysis dialog can be used to analyze any flange in the model based on one of the following four analysis method options:
1. ASME Section VIII, Division 1, Mandatory Appendix 2, Rules for Bolted Flange Connections with Ring Type Gaskets
2. ASME Section VIII, Division 2, Section 4.16, Design Rules for Flanged Joints
3. ASME Section III, Appendix XI, Rules for Bolted Flange Connections for Class 2 and 3 Components and Class MC Vessels
4. ANSI Flange Loading Check
