Benchmark table inputs and outputs have been revised, with material class and correction factor. Single Bellows Axial Vibration Constants were revised. It is characterized by tilting or warping of one or more convolutions. Modulus of Elasticity at design temperature, unless otherwise specified, for material.

Column squirm is defined as a gross lateral shift of the centre section of the bellows. The fatigue life expectancy of an expansion joint frew affected by various factors such as: Distance between outermost ends of the convolutions in a universal expansion joint.

It is calculated as either Lb or Lu plus length of pipe ends. EJMA was founded in to establish and maintain quality design and manufacturing standards. Bellows convoluted length Lb plus the length of the bellows tangent ends or necks.

Axial force or thrust caused by the internal pressurization of the bellows. In ekma of external pressure the reinforcing effect of a possible external collar is excluded. This is calculated on the full effective cross section of the bellows known as the effective area.


This is the displacement of the longitudinal axis of the Expansion Joint from its initial straight line position into a circular arc. Axial Working Spring Rate: Bellows convoluted length or live length.

To order click here. Bellows meridional bending stress due to pressure.

EJMA 10th Edition

Bellows E at Temperature: Fatigue life calculations were greatly enhanced and simplified. The fatigue life expectancy can be defined as the total number of complete cycles which can be expected from the expansion joint. Bellows tangent circumferential membrane stress due to internal pressure. This Guide is not intended as a source for expansion joint design or application details.

Expansion Joints Exhaust Flanges. The main and most important result was that the atandards bending stress due to deflection could be considerably reduced.

Pressure thrust can be calculated by multiplying the working pressure by the effective area PSIG x Ae. Bending Working Spring Rate: The work hardening of austenitic stainless steel, induced during the forming of convolutions, generally improves the fatigue life of an Expansion Joint often to a marked degree.

The calculation of universal type Expansion Joints has been simplified by a modified equation for the axial movement per convolution. Total length of the expansion joint including the possible pipe ends. Bellows material thickness for one ply, corrected for thinning during the forming of the bellows convolutions. Calculated maximum pressure in PSIG before expansion joint may squirm because of inplane instability. Angular rotation is occasionally referred to as rotational movement and is shown in LBS per degree.


Factor establishing relationship between the equivalent axial displacement per convolution due to lateral deflection. The Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association is an organization of established manufacturers of metal bellows type expansion joints. A cycle is defined as one complete movement from the initial position in the piping system to the operating position and back to the initial position. Bellows meridional membrane stress due to deflection.

EJMA 10th Edition

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.

EJMA carries out extensive technical research standardz testing on stahdards important aspects of expansion joint design and manufacturing. The design of every Expansion Joint must be such that the total displacement per convolution from all sources does not exceed the rated values.
