ULTIMATE LOAD VALUES Tensile and Shear

  1. Overall length of fastener is measured from the underside of the head to bottom of the tip. See Figure 1.
  2. Length of thread includes tip. See detailed illustration, Figure 1.
  3. Minor thread, shank and outside thread diameters are shown in table without manufacturing tolerances.
  4. Bending yield strength determined in accordance with ASTM D 1575 using the minor thread diameter.

1Fastener withdrawal was tested in accordance with ASTM D 1761.
2Withdrawal values (W) shall be multiplied by the length of thread penetration in the main member (including tip).

For S1: 1 inch = 25.4 mm; 1lbf/in = 175.127 N/m.
1Fastener pull-through testing was performed in accordance with ASTM D 1037 with 3/4" thick side members.
