RE: turn of the nut

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Make a few mock-ups from the material that you are tapping in a size that you can put in a Skidmore. Put the mock-ups in a calibrated Skidmore and measure the tension. Use the RCSC turn-of-the-nut method QC process.

Say I have a tapped hole, and I need full pre-tension on the bolt. How do I apply the "turn of the nut" method? How do I test representative samples as required by AISC? In this connection - I don't have a nut!

Thanks !!
