# Question

From your experience with Prob. 8–15, generalize your solution to develop a turn-of-nut equation

Where Nt = turn of the nut from snug tight

θ = turn of the nut in degrees

N = number of thread/in (1/p where p is pitch)

Fi = initial preload

kb, km = spring rates of the bolt and members, respectively Use this equation to find the relation between torque-wrench setting T and turn-of-nut Nt .

(“Snug tight” means the joint has been tightened to perhaps half the intended preload to flatten asperities on the washer faces and the members. Then the nut is loosened and retightened finger tight, and the nut is rotated the number of degrees indicated by the equation. Properly done, the result is competitive with torque wrenching.)

RB&W11 recommends turn-of-nut from snug fit to preload as follows: 1/3 turn for bolt grips of 1–4 diameters, 1/2 turn for bolt grips 4–8 diameters, and 2/3 turn for grips of 8–12 diameters. These recommendations are ...We wish to alter the figure for Prob. 8–22 by decreasing the inside diameter of the seal to the diameter A = 100 mm. This makes an effective sealing diameter of 120 mm.
