The fully updated Fifth Edition of John H. Bickford's classic work, updated by Michael Oliver, provides a practical, detailed guide for the design threaded bolted joints, the tightening of threaded joints, and the latest design procedures for long-term life. New sections on materials, threads, and their strength have been added, and coverage of FEA for design analysis is now included.

Referencing the latest standards, this new edition combines fastener materials, explanation of how fasteners are made, and how fasteners fit together, supplementing the basic design coverage included in previous versions of this authoritative text.

Introduction to the Design and Behavior of Bolted Joints: Non-Gasketed Joints will be of interest to engineers involved in the design and testing of bolted joints.
