RE: How Can Force in "All Thread" be Det

It may not be the most accurate method but I have used it in the past with good success (although slightly different applications).  Use the old turn of the nut method, just  PL/AE=elongation.  Your connections would need to be sufficiently rigid to prevent bending and inaccurate 'turns of the nut' but it could work if you were a little conservative on the tension you need.
