## bolt stretching and tensile stress Fastener Fatigue Fastenal Internal thread hardness typically is lower than the bolt threads yet it is still able to provide the proof load necessary to equal the tensile strength of the bolt Take for example a 1 2 inch diameter SAE J429 Grade 8 HCS mated with an SAE J995 Grade 8 nut The bolt has a core hardness requirement of HRC 33 to 39 while the mating nut has a core hardness of HRC 24 to What Is the Tensile Strength of Grade 8 Bolts It Still Runs The tensile strength of a grade 8 bolt is 150 000 pounds per square inch Tensile strength is the maximum load in tension stretching that a part can carry without breaking In addition to tensile strength other mechanical factors in a connection should be considered including yield strength and proper assembly of What is a Tensile Stress Definition from Corrosionpedia 2020 08 24 nbsp 0183 32 Tensile stress is the stress state leading up to expansion The tensile stress may increase up until the tensile strength limit which is known as the limit state of stress and is defined as the force per unit area that is associated with stretching It is denoted by the symbol σ The formula for computing the tensile stress in a rod is Calculation of Clamping force from bolt torque 2016 04 07 nbsp 0183 32 That figure is about right for a low tensile bolt See also this calculator and this table As a reality check if we approximate to a cross sectional area of 7 mm 2 and a load of 1000 N that gives a tensile stress of 140 MPa which is below yield even for low tensile steels In this particular

and eventual failure The first picture is a digital photo of such a failure with the bolt still in the rod The arrows indicate the location of a cut made to free the bolt The third arrow shows the origin of the fatigue crack in the second picture Nut hardware Wikipedia A nut is a type of fastener with a threaded hole Nuts are almost always used in conjunction with a mating bolt to fasten multiple parts together The two partners are kept together by a combination of their threads friction with slight elastic deformation a slight stretching of the bolt and compression of the parts to be held together In applications where vibration or rotation may Bolt Torque Calculator Determining Proper Torque to Bolt St bolt tensile strength As tensile stress area The value for tensile stress area
