Title:Laboratory Tests of Structural Joints with Over-Stressed High Tensile Steel Bolts
Author(s):Fuller, J.R.; Munse, W.H.
Subject(s):bolted joints
Joints (Engineering) -- Testing
Steel bolts, high tensile
Abstract:This report summarizes the results of tests conducted on seven double-strap butt-type joints fastened with high tensile steel bolts. The bolts were torqued far into their plastic range. The joints were then subjected to fatigue and/or static loading to failure. The tests, although few in number, indicate quite clearly that for the type of joint tested, over-stressed high tensile steel bolts are not likely to fail in fatigue: nor is the static strength of the joints affected by the over-stressing of the bolts.
