The short answer is no...

The long answer is:

NASA REF Pub 1228 Fastener Design Manual

Grade 5 & 8 are SAE bolts

RCSSC A325 & A490's

Is there a comprehensive piece of literature that gives the properties
of various bolts? I've found a few fastener manufacturers that list
properties, but these properties appear to vary by manufacturer, and
they don't appear to conform to standards like ASTM A325. It seems there
is some misinformation floating about out there. I'm also seeking
information on Grade 5, Grade 8, etc., which appear to be SAE
designations. Ideally, the info would just be a chart of bolt grade, Fv,
Ft, etc. I feel like I'm overlooking an obovious resource, but I keep
coming up with nothing.

Don?t just search. Find. Check out the new MSN Search!
