  • Understanding the Nut Factor in Threaded-Fastener Torque-Tension Relationship
    load that prevents movement between joint members. Such movement is arguably the most common cause of structural joint failures. The relationship between applied torque and the tension created is described by the relationship: T = K x D x F = nut factor, sometimes called the friction factor, = bolt
  • Cannon Boiler Works Uses FARO for Unique Application with Great Faith
    , there are approximately 62 different features and 80 constructions that must be measured. The 1500 raises these numbers to 150 features and 280 constructions while the 3000 raises them even higher to 200 features and 290 constructions. These exchangers have structural bolting flanges on the shell side
  • Casing the extrusion joint
    compartment in Ford GT supercars. Some 35 different extruded profiles from form a stiff, strong, and lightweight platform. Chassis are assembled using a combination of robotic MIG and friction stir welding. In addition, bolt-on extrusions add structural support to the engine compartment and also
  • Servosystem deftly handles Airbus wings
    With a span nearly as long as a football field at 261 ft, producing a single Airbus A380 wing involves precisely positioning a massive structure to drill, rivet, and bolt approximately 180,000 holes. When the Airbus A380 takes wing later this year, it will be the world's largest commercial aircraft
  • Why is the cylinder head warping? FEA has evidence
    ., used multiphysics FEA software from Pittsburgh, to study the thermal and structural behavior of a prototype diesel-engine cylinder head designed for lower heat rejection and increased power density. In the prototype, temperatures on a stainlesssteel cylinder head were measured at 1,600 F, almost
  • Alltec Protection Pyramid
    p>Alltec Corporation introduces its new ground resistance monitoring product, the GRM2000, which addresses concerns on operator safety and system efficiency. Lightning is an unpredictable act of nature. A "bolt from the blue " can occur 10-20 miles from the cloud source, and power transmission
