An experimental validation of load distribution in screw threads

M. D'Eramo, P. Cappa

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The thread load distribution has been examined, as is known, in literature both theoretically and experimentally. in the present paper the load distribution is validated by strain-gage measurements. Starting from the theoretical load distribution the stresses on the outer surface of the female member of a threaded connection are calculated. The theoretical and experimental stress values obtained are reasonably close.
