I have few questions regarding HI-LOK fasteners used in aerospace industry.
If you look at the attached fastener's table, you will find the last two columns under the heading "DOUBLE SHEAR NEWTON MINIMUM" and "TENSION NEWTON MINIMUM". Can anyone please explain on what these terms mean ? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
I think the TENSION NEWTON MINIMUM means the minimum pretension in the fastener as it's collar wrenching device breaks off when the desired torque is reached. But, I also suspect that these may be allowable tensile load on fastener.
