ASTM F606 provides a method for calculating the stress area for tensile testing of fasteners. Machinery Handbook (26th Edition)shows two equations for the same calculation. The second equation is for steels with an ultimate tensile strength of greater than 100,00 psi. Who devised the second equation and what is the background for it. Thanks.
