Abstract:In the assembly process of aeroengine casing flange joints, elastic interaction occurs between bolts at different positions, and different tightening sequence cause bolt preload dispersion to a certain extent after assembly. To solve this problem, a 3D contact finite element model of the 3-layer casing flange joint with a spigot was established, and the methods of applying the bolt preload under different loading schemes were studied. Based on the finite element model, the bolt preload dispersion of the clockwise tightening sequence, the cross tightening sequence, and the two-pass clockwise-counterclockwise circular tightening sequence for the 3-layer flange joint were simulated numerically. The corresponding test equipment was set up to verify the preload dispersion of the three loading schemes. The results show that the bolt preload uniformity is the best when adopting the two-pass clockwise-counterclockwise circular tightening sequence, and the bolt preload dispersion is relatively small. The bolt preload dispersion results from the finite element simulation and the test are 2.43% and 4.98% respectively. After adopting this loading scheme, a better sealing effect and stiffness symmetry can be achieved for the flange joint with a spigot.
