Abstract : A coupling stud assembly for coupling together a pair of flanges. A stud having a tapered surface is inserted into respective overlapping through-holes provided in the flanges so that a space is defined between the stud and inner walls of the holes. A wedge is fitted into the space and is pressed by a wedge spacer so as to tighten contact between the stud and the inner walls of the through holes. Nuts are provided on threaded ends of the stud to securely couple the flanges together. This arrangement provides a tight, vibration-free coupling between the flanges.
