High Strength Bolts. The behaviour of structural connexions using high strength bolts stressed beyond their proof stress

Connexions employing high strength bolts have been shown to have many advantages oer riveted connexions but there are a number of aspects relating to the use of these bolts that remain imperfectly understood. One of these is the establishment of a satisfactory method of tightening. The requirements are (i) an accurately induced pre-load in the bolt, (ii) simplicity, both in tightening and in checking, and (iii) an adequate factor of safety against bolt failure resulting from over-tightening. Professor Royston Jones and Alan Robert Baker
