    This paper presents an analysis of the stresses in V-section band clamps by examining the correlation between experimental work and theoretical models. Theoretical models incorporating traditional beam-bending theories and allowing for friction were developed to calculate the stress distribution and displacements within the clamps. The theoretical models demonstrated that the normal manufacturing tolerances associated with this type of component, combined with the uncontrolled operating parameters, will produce a wide variation in working stresses.

    These theoretical models were validated using strain and displacement measurements from a test with a V-section band clamp positioned around rigid flanges. The experimental results all fell within the range of stresses predicted by the theoretical models. The paper provides a knowledge base for the rational design of V-section band clamps
