Bolt torque calculation for flanges

When designing a flange, it is possible to enable the calculation - which remains optional - of the tightening torque required for the bolts.

Regardless of the calculation code adopted, be it American or European, the methods for calculating the tightening torque are those of ASME PCC-1

For flanges that support this calculation, simply enable it by checking the appropriate option in the "General" category of the component:

A new "Torque" category will then be displayed, in which to set the calculation method and its geometric and operational parameters:

The calculation report will finally show the procedure. This calculation does not require any validation and is available for both standard flanges and code-calculated flanges.
