NASA Publication 1228, Fastener Design Manual by Barrett is the best thing I have ever seen for fastener design.

Subject: half height steel nuts
Date: Wed, 16 Nov 2005 11:15:26 -0800

Listers -

I am trying to research design capacities for some half-height "jamb
nuts" for use with connecting some A36 threaded rods in tension.  I
would assume that you could conservatively take 1/2 the allowable
tensile strength in the threaded rod as the half-height nut capacity
(because obviously a standard height nut can develop the full rod
capacity).

Can anyone point to a text resource that might give me some nut capacity
formulas or, really just something to back up my simple argument.

thank you
