Standard Test Methods for Determining the Mechanical Properties of Externally and Internally Threaded Fasteners, Washers, and Rivets
|Publication Date:||10 December 2000|
|ICS Code (Fasteners in general):||21.060.01|
1.1 These test methods establish procedures for conducting tests to determine the mechanical properties of externally and internally threaded fasteners, washers, and rivets.
1.2 Property requirements and the applicable tests for their determination are specified in individual product standards. In those instances where the testing requirements are unique or at variance with these standard procedures, the product standard shall specify the controlling testing requirements.
1.3 These test methods describe mechanical tests for determining the following properties:
|For Externally Threaded Fasteners:||3|
|Method 1, Length Measurement||3.2.3|
|Method 2, Yield Strength||3.2.4|
|Method 3, Uniform Hardness||3.2.5|
|Axial Tension Testing of Full-Size Product||3.4|
|Wedge Tension Testing of Full-Size Product||3.5|
|Tension Testing of Machined Test Specimens||3.6|
|Total Extension at Fracture TestSingle Sheer Test||3.7 3.8|
|For Internally Threaded Fasteners:||4|
|Proof Load Test||4.2|
|Cone Proof Load Test||4.3|
|For Washers and Direct Tension Indicators:||5|
|Through Hardened Washers||5.2|
|Test for Embrittlement of Metallic-Coated Externally Threaded Fasteners||7|
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Note 1--A complete metric companion to Test Methods F606 has been developed--F606M; therefore, no metric equivalents are shown in these test methods.
