Introduction to the Design and Behavior of Bolted Joints Non-Gasketed Joints Fourth Version by John H. Bickford


This fourth version stands on the shoulders of the first three editions, so I’ve included massive excerpts from their prefaces as soon as once more. These element the steps taken—and the themes developed—to attain this level. The acknowledgments present in the third version are nonetheless legitimate too, so they’re additionally included. At the finish of this preface I specific my thanks for the extra assist offered for this current textual content.

The third version was just below 1,000 pages in size, so it was clearly undesirable to create an extended, single quantity, fourth version. Expertise in conducting bolting seminars, and via contacts with readers has proven, moreover, that the viewers for this textual content is available in two flavors. Many customers deal primarily with gasketed, stress vessel, and piping joints. The remaining cope with the sorts of non-gasketed joints present in the auto, aerospace, structural metal, heavy gear, mass manufacturing, and different industries.


So it was determined that this fourth version must be printed in two volumes, one for every group. It was additional determined that Quantity 2, for gasketed joint customers, must be coauthored by me and by Jim Payne. Jim is an internationally acknowledged professional in PVP joints, and may be very lively in ASME, the Stress Vessel Analysis Council, and different teams that sponsor analysis and write requirements coping with gasketed joints. Jim will write all of the chapters whose focus is the gasketed joint.

I’ll contribute these chapters pertinent to any bolted joint: on the primary habits of joints and bolts, on supplies, on threads, on torque and different preload management means, on failure modes frequent to gasketed and non-gasketed joints, and many others. This generic materials may even, of course, be included in the quantity designed for these coping with non-gasketed joints, so there shall be an incredible deal of redundancy between the two volumes. We count on that just a few readers will want or need each volumes. Earlier editions have been used by practising engineers, and have not often if ever been used as a classroom textual content.


An try has been made this time to make it extra enticing not solely to individuals in the discipline but in addition to academics. A set of issues or workouts has been included at the finish of every chapter. Solutions to these shall be present in the Appendix. All of the data required to reply the questions or do the workouts will be present in the ebook, both in the textual content or in the tables of knowledge present in the Appendices. In actual fact, many of the workouts have been designed to drive the pupil to seek for data or knowledge not in the chapter containing these workouts however elsewhere in the ebook, to encourage him to find out how to use the ebook extra successfully.

These workouts also needs to assist to repair the materials in the thoughts of a homebased pupil. An try has additionally been made to create a leaner, meaner textual content: lengthy winded historic discussions, redundancies, irrelevancies and the like have been excluded this time in order that primary concepts, knowledge, and themes shall be simpler to discover and use. The general aim is a helpful textual content that may also be used for coaching functions. A lot materials has been eradicated, however quite a bit of new data has been added.
