Figure 3 displays the configuration of a screw size M10 with property class 16.8 and the aluminum alloy EN AW 5754 as nut material, to summarize the advantages of using a wired thread insert to reinforce the thread of a bolted connection in assembly condition.
In addition, from Table 1, it is also observed that the ratio between the maximum bearing strength and yielding strength of 5% diameter offset decreased with the increase in bolt diameter, which indicated that bolted connection in small bolt diameter that has larger bearing capacity was calculated with the yielding strength of 5% diameter offset.
Numerical modelling of double shear bolted connection under monotonic loading
This finding suggests that end distance of 5d would be acceptable as the minimum end distance of LVL bolted connection.
A total of 98 bolted connection specimens (i.e., angle and I-shape-3 specimens: three for each test variation, I-shape-1, and I-shape-2 specimens: four for each test variation) were prepared by drilling holes with different bolt-hole clearances.
The problem was traced to a bolted connection where the cable passes through the front bulkhead.
If the cost of welding remains below 0.97 times the cost of the bolted connection, the welded connection is the recommended one.
Therefore, in friction bolted connection, the beam needs higher axial force to move upward when it is subjected to temperature increase.
The FDS Group said the academy would provide accredited and awareness training courses in the processes workers have to follow to achieve and maintain a leak-free bolted connection.
Stress concentration factors for the threads and bolt head fillet in a bolted connection have been suggested by Lehnhoff and Bunyard [5] using linear finite element analysis.
Thus, for example, bolted connections on high-pressure pipework in a chemical process plant might be denoted as a 'high' consequence asset-if there was a fault with the bolted connection, the consequences could be serious, with the potential for substantial damage and injury or loss of life and the possible additional hazard of severe environmental impact.
