A Method for Calculation of Fastener Torque Specifications Which Includes Statistical Tolerancing

SW Dean, JD Reiff
2005 Journal of ASTM International  
The Monte Carlo simulation method is applied to quantify the probability of exceeding the maximum desired bolt exploitation for fasteners tightened to a torque specification. The simulation results are utilized to develop a method for the calculation of torque specifications such that the probability that a bolt will exceed the maximum desired bolt exploitation is thirty-two parts per million (ppm).
