2020-2-17This study consisted of tensile testing of tensile bolt joints a tension/moment-resistance type of joint [27 28 29 30 31 32] fastened by an initial tightening force The specific goals were to gain basic knowledge about how this force affects the load factor and interface separation load in

2011-9-27Bolt Science's web page has the case study shown below (Bolt Science is not affiliated with FAST-DAQ or SureBolt) Note especially the investigation's findings on friction variations causing an accurate (5% variation) torqueing process to give a very inaccurate (40% variation) bolt tension Then see the pie chart to see where the torque goes All credit for this information should go to Bolt

2015-1-11For everyday purposes the clamping force can be approximated by measuring the tightening torque I stumbled across Bolt Science several months ago Glad to see that others have too The study indicates this was not the case When load applied approaches the yield limit for the bolt the washer twists or rolls

2016-1-12Using this tightening torque with the highest values of friction and a prevailing torque of 7 N-m they determined that the bolt's clamp force would only be 23 9 kN under the worst case condition This was significantly below that which the application required

2020-8-15The torque specified had been 660 Nm or 487 lb-ft but the torque actually reached was closer to 295 lb-ft To solve the problem the bus crew used a smaller sized bolt with a greater strength M12 Bolt Fretting Failure Bolt Science an independent engineering organization in England discusses this example on its website

Thus in this study in experiments under dry (as-obtained) and lubricated (Loctite 263) conditions the tool (preset-type and dial-type torque wrenches) and bolt strength classification (8 8 and 10 9) were changed and the screw-thread characteristics were observed during actual bolt tightening and the characteristics under different

The precise application of tightening torque is one of the important measures to ensure accurate bolt connection and improvement in product assembly quality Currently due to the limited assembly space and efficiency a wrench without the function of torque measurement is still an extensively used assembly tool Therefore wrench torque monitoring is one of the urgent problems that needs to

2012-1-11the tightening torque TORQUE TOOLS Torque is simply defined as a measurement of turning or twisting force applied to an object Every day screwdrivers wrenches impact tools and even hammers are used to apply torque on assembly lines to create the tension required to clamp bolts screws and other fasteners firmly together

2006-6-1Fig 10 shows load–displacement diagrams of bolted joint specimens tested at constant torque (15 Nm) and various outer diameter washer sizes The slope of these diagrams (stiffness of the joint) increase with decreasing washer size Note that at constant tightening torque (i e constant bolt axial force) the contact pressure of the washer decreases with increasing the contact area A = (π

By considering the tightening process a three-dimensional elastic finite element analysis is conducted to explore the mechanism of bolt self-loosening under transverse cyclic loading According to the geometrical features of the thread a hexahedral meshing is implemented by modifying the node coordinates based on cylinder meshes and an ABAQUS plug-in is made for parametric modeling

Prevailing torque nuts Nylon or metal inserts inside a nut (sometimes called a "lock nut") can add extra friction to prevent loosening A related idea is to fit a spring inside the nut which firmly grasps the bolt threads and is designed to move in the opposite direction

Should I tighten the bolt head or the nut? Either is acceptable however a torque value defined for tightening the head does not necessarily apply to tightening the nut Tightening the head vs the nut can result in different nut factors and therefore change the torque required to achieve proper preload

The most commonly used method of tightening in the elastic region of a bolt is the torque-control method while tightening a bolt into its plastic region is often done by using the torque and angle method The pretension for cylinder head bolt is created when a torque is applied and is generally a percentage of the fastener's yield strength
