Description

In this paper we describe an automated technique for measuring bolt axial stress and report stress measurements made using the technique in our laboratory. We propose to use this technique in an instrument with which the quality control engineer will be able to check bolt preload on assembled machines. The instrument will allow measurement to be made with access to only one end of the bolt and will not require either prior knowledge of the original bolt length or disturbance of the bolted joint.

An Ultrasonic Technique for Axial Bolt-Stress Determination

La Jolla, CA

In this paper we describe an automated technique for measuring bolt axial stress and report stress measurements made using the technique in our laboratory. We propose to use this technique in an instrument with which the quality control engineer will be able to check bolt preload on assembled machines. The instrument will allow measurement to be made with access to only one end of the bolt and will not require either prior knowledge of the original bolt length or disturbance of the bolted joint.
