标准名称：《Flanges and their joints — Design rules for gasketed circular flange connections Part 2 Gasket parameters》英文版
标准编号：BS EN 1591-2-2008
This European Standard details generic gasket parameters for use in EN 1591-1 during preliminary calculations during which the type of gasket to be used in an application is to be decided. Once the gasket type has been decided the parameters for gaskets of that type from the different potential commercial suppliers should be used in further calculations as within a gasket type there will be differences depending upon the supplier.
WARNING — For the final calculations using the method given in EN 1591-1 the reader is directed to obtain gasket parameters for the selected generic type of gasket from the intended gasket manufacturer. This is because the data for a generic gasket type will vary between manufacturers.This variation can be seen in the tables of data which are embodied in this document.

4 Typical gasket parameters for various gasket styles
It shall be noted that the data given in the following tables is only intended to be used in preliminary calculations using EN 1591-1. The data was obtained using the test methods given in EN 13555 during the testing of a selection of a few of the many styles and makes of commercial gasket that are on offer in Europe. For final calculations the user of EN 1591-1 shall contact the gasket supplier of choice and obtain the data for the style and thickness of the gasket intended to be used.
