T bolts with V bands are used to hold two sections of pipe together with each section of pipe having a flared flange at the ends. Though they are quite popular in various industries including heavy duty diesel engines, analysis involving these joints is not available. This thesis would involve static and dynamic behavior of the joints. Behavior of these joints in comparison with bolted joints are also provided.
