"The flange is 1" thick,

"The flange is 1" thick, same thickness as same size slip on flange."
What is your point?
Both the Slip-on and the Lap-joint have the same thickness and both have a hub. See http://www.texasflange.com/Catalog.pdf My statement about the hub adding stability and rigidity to the flange is still valid.
Possibility I confused you by using the 1/8" thickness in my example. That was just for the purpose of giving a simple and easy to understand description of what the hub does.
If I did confuse you I am sorry, please forgive me for my error.
Thank you Jop, I am the one has to say sorry for confusing everyone. I was half way through my post and had been distracted for the Valentine things. I said I try to rephrase my questions which I never did. Anyway, I agree with you that the hub do provide additional stability and rigidity to the flange.
Thanks a lot for that. I am satisfied for the answer, the engineer has structural background so I'll ask him to compare the rigidity so he could satisfy himself too.
