Standard Specification for “Twist Off” Type Tension Control Structural Bolt/Nut/Washer Assemblies, Steel, Heat Treated, 120/105 ksi Minimum Tensile Strength
|Publication Date:||1 September 2014|
|ICS Code (Fasteners in general):||21.060.01|
This specification covers two types of heat treated, steel, tension control bolt-nut-washer assemblies, also referred to as "sets." These assemblies are capable of developing a minimum predetermined tension when installed by applying torque to the nut, while at the same time applying a counter torque to separate the spline end from the body of the bolt using an appropriate spline drive installation tool.
An assembly consists of a tension control bolt with spline end (covered by this specification) and a suitable nut and washer covered by reference to applicable ASTM specifications.
The fastener assemblies are intended for use in structural connections. These connections, installation procedures, and the use of alternate design structural bolts are covered under the requirements of the "Specification for Structural Joints Using ASTM A325 or A490 Bolts," approved by the Research Council on Structural Connection.
The assemblies are available with either round (button or dome) heads, heavy hex structural heads, or alternate design heads described in Section 10 and Fig. 1, in sizes 1⁄2 to 1 1⁄8 in. inclusive, in two types specified in Section 4.
Terms used in this specification are defined in Terminology F1789 unless otherwise defined herein.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test method portions, Sections 13 and 14, of this Specification: 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.
