When calculating the strength of threads, do you just do a simple tensile stress calculation on the thread shear area?
Finding thread shear area of a bolt from here: http://ift.tt/2pSZiu7
, is it as simple as performing a stress calculation of load / thread shear area to determine a FOS?
10,000 lbf load
material UTS 800MPa
thread shear area XYZ
FOS = UTS/calculated stress
calculated stress = load / thread shear area
I've been looking up how to get a max load from thread shear area for a couple hours now but there's nothing that goes through it clearly, and all the calculators I have found seem to give different or weird results.
