dBEditor

Database Editor for BOLTCALC's Databases

BOLTCALC is Bolt Science's premier product for the analysis of bolted joints. The program uses several databases, they are used in a read only manner by BOLTCALC but can be edited to allow values to be added, deleted or changed by Bolt Science’s dBEditor program. A screen shot for the program is shown below:

The purpose of these databases is to assist the user in entering standard values into the program. Details of these databases are given below:

Metric Thread Database

Contains the principal metric thread sizes from M1 to M200 (84 sizes) including metric coarse and fine threads. Contains details of the principal thread head and hole dimensions, prevailing torque values for various grades of fasteners.

Inch Thread Database

Contains the principal inch thread sizes from #0 to 4 inches (73 sizes) covering UNC and UNF and constant pitch series threads. Contains details of the principal thread head and hole dimensions, prevailing torque values for various grades of fasteners.

Metric Bolt Material Database

Contains the major bolt material specifications covering ISO, SAE and ASTM standards (112 records). Includes steel, alloy steel, stainless steel and non-ferrous metals. Details of bolt head marking requirements specified in the relevant standard is also included.

Inch Bolt Material Database

Contains the major bolt material specifications covering SAE and ASTM standards (160 records). Includes steel, alloy steel, stainless steel and non-ferrous metals. Details of bolt head marking requirements specified in the relevant standard are also included.

Thread Friction Coefficient Database

Contains 123 records of thread friction coefficient values for various finish and material conditions. Minimum, mean and maximum coefficients are provided together with details of the source of the information (publication, report or test report reference).

Head Friction Coefficient Database

Contains 157 records of head friction coefficient values for various finish and material conditions. Minimum, mean and maximum coefficients are provided together with details of the source of the information (publication, report or test report reference).

Metric and Inch Torque Range Databases

Includes records to allow a standard range of torque values (minimum/maximum) to be selected to match with manufacturing requirements to prevent a profusion of torque values being specified.
