Theoretical and Practical Studies for Designing the Effective Length of Threaded Fasteners, Considering the Applied Torque on the Joint 2010-36-0472

The effective length of screwed fasteners, regarding its correlation between safety assembling and production issues, has always been an open question for designers of fastening system. This work presents a real case of dimensioning one wheel nut according to theoretical and practical tests in order to guarantee a safe assembling. The objective of this study is to validate the geometric dimensioning of metric threads and their applications under real conditions.
