Techniques to Reduce Joint Relaxation in Fastened Joints

Techniques to Reduce Joint Relaxation in Fastened Joints

Joint relaxation occurs to some extent in all fastened joints. It is caused by the surface of part(s) embedding or by “soft parts” such as gaskets, plastics or spongy material, which collapses under the clamping force created in a torque fastening condition. For correctly designed joints, relaxation is small and can be virtually ignored. However,…
