    Pretension is often adjusted by applying torque to the bolt, screw, or nut. Torque application increases tension in the fastener and clamping force between components. It is necessary to understand the difference between clamping force and the amount of torque applied to the screw or bolt. These two metrics generally correlate, but are differ-File Size: KB. Torque is a force that causes an object to rotate, while tension is a force that causes an object to stretch or elongate. A closer look at the common units of torque, ftlb (Nm), reveals that torque consists of a force multiplied by a it is not just any distance; it is the distance perpendicular to the direction of the force between the object’s axis of rotation and the point.

    Tension, Not Torque Matters: How to Measure Bolt Tension In our last post, we discussed how measuring torque is an inaccurate way of getting the right bolt fact, a brand new bolt will require +/% torque to achieve the same tension as another new bolt out of the same box. RE: The relationship between torque and the amount stretched (of/in a bolt) Screwman1 (Mechanical) 23 Feb 15 I would serialize the bolts so you can get them back into the same location, center drill both end of each one and then measure the installed length of each bolt using a ball end micrometer.

    Measuring torque is essential for companies to ensure their product’s quality, safety and reliability isn’t compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Bolts that are not tightened sufficiently can vibrate and extreme torque can strip threaded bolts . When bolts are fastened to a device or structure, they require a certain amount of preload torque tension in order to properly support the final load. Preload tension is the amount of tension applied to the bolt by a device like a torque wrench or spanner that tightens the bolt into place before the load it will eventually support is added.

An experimental study of the torque-tension relationship for bolted joints Article (PDF Available) in International Journal of Materials and Product Technology 16() January with 1, Reads. The Connection Between Nut Torque and Bolt Tension (Why threads strip and bolts break) When a bolt and nut is tightened to draw the bolt head and nut together it stretches the shank, deforms the threads and loads the object trapped between the bolt head and : Mike Sondalini.

torque bolts and nuts. Hytorc is the world biggest manufacturer of hydraulic and air driven torque tools. Other well known accessories to enhance safety, accuracy and speed are the Clamp Tensioning Nut and LoadDISC washer.

BoltSafe BoltSafe is a Dutch company providing Bolt load Measuring Systems. The main product is aFile Size: KB. The major diameteris the largest diameter of a screw thread. It is also the nominal size of the bolt. The minor diameter is the smallest diameter of a screw thread.

(Also referred to as the root diameter.) The lead is the distance the nut moves parallel to the screw axis when the nut is given one Size: KB.

The relationship between tension and torque should be looked at cautiously, since it is very difficult to indicate the range of conditions expected to be experienced by a fastener.

Bolts are designed to stretch just a small amount, and this elongation is what clamps the joint together. About 60% of the torque required to tighten a bolt is consumed by overcoming the friction between the nut and the flat washer, about 30% overcoming the friction between bolt and nut threads, and 10% to elongate the bolt.

According to multiple tests, torque-tension relationships can vary by as much as 40% for structural bolts. and specified first, then the torque required to induce that preload is determined. Within the elastic range, before permanent stretch is induced, the relationship between torque and tension is essentially linear (see figure 13).

Some studies have found up to 75 variables have an effect on this relation. to defining the relationship between torque, angle, and tension. There can be as many as or more factors that affect the tension created in a bolt when tightening torque is applied (refer to paragraph ).

Fortunately, torque-angle signature curves can be obtained for most bolted Size: 2MB. Based on a torque wrench accuracy of 5%, N-m would be the lowest value of torque applied to each of the bolts. Using 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.

Shigleys is ok, but k factor is a bit dated way of thinking of the relationship between torque and tension, or at least that’s my thoughts on it. Many of the big oem’s of the world us CoF to classify this relationship.

I would recommend learning about the Coefficient of friction of a fastener. relationship between torque and the resulting bolt tension. Friction that acts in the threads of the bolt and under the bolt head dissipates the majority of the tightening torque. For a free spinning thread, typically only about 15% of the torque is actually used to extend the fastener.

structure is known. In post-tension structures, the tension is only applied after the beam or structure had been produced. The load is applied to the tendons inside the structure via bolts and nuts arrangement.

Thus the resulting stress in the beam depends on the level of torque being applied to the Size: KB. The goals of this case study are: To develop a feel for the strength of a 1/ bolt.

To better understand the different bolt grades. To be able to translate preload torque into preload tension. To understand difference between ultimate tensile strength and proof strength for a bolt. The torque calculations in this chart are provided as a guide only.

Due to the many factors that affect the torque-tension relationship, such as material, surface finish, lubrication, etc., the torque-tension relationship should be established experimentally. Use at your own risk. SAE Grade 5 Torque Values in ft. lbs. Bolt Threads K = K File Size: KB.

Applying the appropriate torque to bolts and verifying that the tool that applied the torque was correctly calibrated is essential for structural bolt tightening and for running a safe, effective plant or job site. ISO and proper torque calibration.

Developed in the s, ISO is a standard for showing that a calibration lab is. “Time is money,” he said. For mounting blades to hubs, you may want to use a torque wrench. By using a standard hydraulic torque wrench to torque those bolts, it can take a lot of time.” Tension.

Washington noted that tensioning systems can cost up to 30 times as much as torque wrenches, making them a big investment. object. We call this force to fix axial tension. Apply suitable axial tension It is best to do axial tension control for tightening screw, but ac-tually it is difficult to measure axial tension.

Torque control is done as a substitute characteristic. Torque and Screw (1) Relation formula between screw and torque Formula of screw ①File Size: KB.stretching results in bolt tension, known as preload, which is the force that holds a joint together.

Torque meter can be used to measure bolt tension. High preload tension helps to keep bolts tight, increases the strength of a joint, and generates friction between parts to resist shear and improves the fatigue resistance of bolted Size: 1MB.the head is decreased and the relation between tightening torque and clamping force is changed.

If the same torque is applied as before lubrication, a lot more torque will be trans-formed into clamping force. At worst this might lead to the tension in the screw exceeding the .
