How is bolt torque determined? DETERMINING TORQUE
The general equation for bolt load based on applied torque is T = KFiDb where K = torque coefficient. K is a function of the coefficients of friction and collar friction in the joint, and these are based on variables such as surface finish, coatings, and so on.
How is installation torque calculated? The Torque/Tension Equation is a method used to estimate the torque/tension relationship in an assembly. T = (K D P)/12 can be used to developt a torque value that will achieve a certain tension or clamp load. T = Torque (ft. -lbs.)
How do you measure torque on a bolt without a torque wrench?
Does length of bolt affect torque? Tightening torque is not influenced by the bolt length so easy to standardize. The Bolt efficiency will be low due to wide tolerance of the tension.
