SCI Design Guide for stainless steel
This article covers how to design stainless steel bolts (fasteners) subject to shear and tension forces. Shear and tension capacities for bolts of property class 50, 70 and 80 from diameter M10 to M24 are given. (207)
Maximum breaking torque values for property class 50, 70 and 80 austenitic fastener grades A1, A2, A3 A4 and A5 taken from BS EN ISO 3506-1 are shown. A link is provided to the Bulten Stainless web site where maximum tightening torque, yield load and failure load for austenitic stainless steel fasteners are tabulated.
