Bolt Torque Calculations

Dear readers in continuation with my previous post, Let us discuss about the “What torque should be given for the Bolts?”
The only way to properly determine the optimum tightening torque for a given application is to simulate the exact application. This should be done with a tension indicating device like Torque Wrench or Spanner. The widely recognized engineering formula is T= K x D x P

T=Target tighten torque
K= Coefficient of friction (nut factor / Slip Factor), always an estimation in this formula
D = Bolts nominal diameter
P = Clamp Load or Bolt's desired tensile load (generally 75% of yield strength)

Above Three factors affect how much tension occurs when a given amount of tightening torque is applied. The first factor is the bolt's diameter. Naturally M24 bolts take more force to tighten than M16 bolt. The second factor is the bolt's grade. It takes more force to stretch a 10.9 Grade bolt than it does to stretch an 8.8 Grade bolt because of the greater material strength. The third factor is the coefficient of friction often called as nut factor and it is always estimation.
Keep in mind this is only an estimated value. It may provide satisfactory performance, but it also may not. It is extremely important to realize that this tightening value is valid only so long as all of the aspects of the application remain constant. Don’t think if you are giving more torque means it is good for structure / application, because during the torque operation bolt will be stretched. If more stretched than required it may be broken. So each and every application should be evaluated on its own to determine the optimum torque value for each application. If you are not aware please refer the manufacturer recommendations & Technical specification or use above formula with contingency.
Co-Efficient of Friction / Slip factor or Nut Factor details will be followed my Next Post.

Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site?
My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from some of the information you provide

The fitness tips for motivation we've been discussing can be very powerful if you use them. The fitness vacation - Whenever vacation is referred to, most of would think enjoying tropical foods, sitting beside the pool, drinking, and partying all night. This can be achieved by adding more weight, increasing the number of repetitions, or by adding on additional sets.

The city of Danbury's metro options into NYC, give anyone in New Milford, Newtown, Bethel, New Fairfield and Sherman options for travelling south. Also, keep in mind that the ingredients for the mix should be bought from a home improvement store to insure quality. Read your warranty carefully, and you'll
see that it probably doesn't cover walls with efflorescence.

Deciding to buy online can result in a huge cost savings while providing
you the best options for your hair care needs today.
As natural products don't have any side-effects, you can rest assured for healthy hair. A well groomed woman will look to her hair and makeup first and a poll of 3,000 females across the UK revealed that about 44% feel attractive if they are having a good hair day, this compares to 16% who felt pleased with their appearance if good teeth gave them that winning smile.

The product, according to the brand, can be applied throughout the
day on dry hair if one's hair is medium to very coarse. Likewise, using imported shampoos and conditioners from a tropical country when your climate is cold and temperate is not such a good idea. Generally, these products are more expensive than their watered-down counterparts, but you can find a few affordable pure silicone hair products (see below).

Greate article. Keep writing such kind of information on your site.
Im really impressed by your site.
Hello there, You've done an incredible job. I'll definitely digg it and for
my part suggest to my friends. I'm confident they'll be benefited
from this website.
