This seminar introduces participants to all aspects of threaded fasteners including nomenclature, geometric considerations, metallurgy, material properties, applied stresses, and considerations for fatigue, corrosion, brittle fracture and temperature. Methods are developed for the analysis and design of bolted joints under axial and shear loads. Other topics include assembly practice and methods to control preload.
This document covers all-metal, self-locking nuts, plate nuts, and gang channel nuts made of a corrosion and heat resistant nickel alloy.

Abstract Reliable wheel attachment must start with proper tightening of the lug nuts in order to achieve the clamping force necessary to hold the vehicle's wheels securely for all operating conditions. It is the purpose of this paper to provide a complete overview of the theory and practice of using torque-angle signature analysis methods to examine the installation and audits of wheel lug nuts. An accurate estimate of clamp load can be determined without actually measuring the clamp load. The torque-angle signature analysis, known as “M-Alpha”, performed on tightening and loosening curves provides a powerful tool to understand the integrity of a bolted joint when clamp load data is not available. This analysis technique gives insight into the frictional effects, material properties, and geometric factors that can affect the clamp load attained during the installation process.

Abstract As automotive technology rapidly provides advances in lighter weight designs and materials, the technology to fasten and join them must keep pace. This paper will explore two uniquely different fastening technologies that are being used to address some of today's demanding application challenges in plastics and thin steel and aluminum sheet. These are two areas of application that have historically provided few good options for designers, especially as they attempt to push the envelope with progressive, light weight designs. The first technology is self- tapping screws for plastics that, although not new, are now evolving to enable smaller bosses and shorter thread engagements, and incorporate light weight design options. Although dependent on the demands of the application, these screws can be produced in both steel and, now, lighter weight materials such as aluminum and plastic. The paper will explore how these technologies can be employed by the designer to obtain desired weight reduction initiatives over more conventional threaded fasteners for fastening plastic.

This Information Report along with SAE J500 and J501 is generally understood to be technically obsolete for the design of new applications. However, it is listed for those existing applications where it may be required. For the design of new applications, consult ANSI B92.1-1970—Involute Splines and Inspections Standard.
