RE: Stainless Steel Bolts

You will probably have to write your own.  I assume you want to pretension the bolts.  If so you will have to substantiate the tension using a Skidmore. Be careful of the techniques and lubricants.  Stainless steels are prone to galling, and do not allow any reuse for the same reasons you never reuse galvanized bolts.

You could also use a hydraulic tensioner.

You might want to look at the "Fastener Design Manual" by Barrett.

Does anyone know of a bolting spec for stainless steel bolts in a fresh
water environment (not a material spec) that is something similar to
"Specification for Structural Joints Using ASTM A325 or A490 Bolts".
