After all the mechanical engineering classes on stress analysis calculations,
why do some bolted joints fail? Here is Bolt Science's bolted joint
information page. As you browse their site, notice the problems
caused by variations in bolt tension. SureBolt helps you avoid such variations in tension.
See animation. What are the sources
of torque wrench tension errors?
