Title (EN) CENTROIDALLY TWISTABLE COMPRESSION RING FOR PIPE JOINTS
(FR) BAGUE DE COMPRESSION A TORSION CENTROIDE POUR RACCORDS DE TUYAUX
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A locking ring designed to work in a self restraining pipe joint. This locking ring is designed (which may include attention to a combination of shape and material properties) to twist when exposed to a concentrated load and thereby distribute this load across broader area of the pipe joint to increase the thrust restraining capabilities of the joint.
(FR)L'invention concerne une bague de verrouillage conçue pour être utilisée dans un raccord de tuyau d'immobilisation automatique. Cette bague de verrouillage est conçue (pouvant faire preuve de propriétés de forme et de matière) pour être tordue lors de son exposition à une charge concentrée de manière à répartir par la suite cette charge sur une zone plus importante du raccord de tuyau afin d'augmenter les capacités d'immobilisation de la poussée du raccord.
