Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this study will be to investigate the effects of three variables: Zinc plating, Flange head hex bolt, and washers on the torque coefficient of the respective bolts. The problem first surfaced when zinc plated bolts with washers started stretching and breaking at the recommended torque. This problem never surfaced when the bolts were steel ; It was therefore concluded that the coefficient of friction must be different for zinc plated with washers than steel bolts with washers. An experiment will be devised in which the torque coefficient of the three types of bolts are investigated. Material has been ordered and a budget has been approved for this experiment.
