  • For a valve having a bonnet, the disk is the third primary principal pressure boundary. The disk provides the capability for permitting and prohibiting fluid flow. With the disk closed, full system pressure is applied across the disk if the outlet side is depressurized. For this reason, the disk is a pressure-retaining part. Disks are typically forged and, in some designs, hard-surfaced to provide good wear characteristics. A fine surface finish of the seating area of a disk is necessary for good sealing when the valve is closed.

  • They find that the elasticity of CO2 emissions and energy are close to unity (i.e., a 1% increase in population leads to an approximately 1% increase in CO2 emissions). They do not estimate how these elasticities may vary with population levels. All of these results are based on cross-sectional data for 1 year only. Finally, Shi (2003), again in the context of the IPAT model, uses a panel of cross-sectional and time series data. Shi finds population elas- ticities for CO2 of between 1.41 and 1.
