Tightening of a bolted joint can be divided into basic categories, where screw is utilized either in its elastic or plastic region.
Its three main components are the Joint Analysis program, which determines whether or not a bolted joint is capable of sustaining the forces acting upon it; the Thread Analysis Program, which calculates the forces necessary to strip the internal and external threads as well as fracture a fastener; and the Torque Analysis Program, which is specifically designed to provide a means of determining the correct tightening torque and the resulting anticipated clamp force for a threaded fastener.
Returning from Canada to Cambridge, he met with a trusted colleague, drove to his Maine summer home where for several days he carefully worked through a series of detailed structural calculations and concluded that failure of a bolted joint at the thirtieth floor was likely in a sixteen-year storm.
The average person generally would blame vibration as the chief culprit, but several studies indicate the main reason is insufficient preload, allowing side-to-side slippage of bolt relative to the bolted joint members.
