Bolt Tightening - Turn of the nut method

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello all,

If the "Turn of Nut" method is adopted for monitoring the bolt tension is it
not right  to say that
the turn indicates the compression of the flanges rather than tension in the
bolt ? In my opinion
tension in the bolt will be in error depending on the flexibility of the
flanges if the turn of nut is directly correlated with bolt tension.
