Abstract

Fatigue characteristics of bolted joint tightened with a steel bolt have been discussed extensively. However the fatigue characteristics of bolted joint tightened with a nonferrous bolt have not been sufficiently discussed. In this study, two types of fatigue tests, axial fatigue tests and transverse fatigue tests, for nonferrous bolts were conducted. The nonferrous bolts used in this study made of AZ31 and AZX912 magnesium alloy and A5056 aluminum alloy. The results of both fatigue tests showed that the fatigue limits of the A5056 bolt were the highest of all. The fatigue limits of two kinds of the magnesium alloy bolts were almost the same in both fatigue tests. However the ration of the axial fatigue limits to the transverse fatigue limits were different according to the bolt materials.
