Research Report RP20-8
The report presents a research project aimed at comparing ASTM and SAE J429 bolts. The research includes comparison of those two bolt standards in terms of tensile strength, chemical and mechanical properties, shanks length, head size, thread profile and bolt styles. The research shows that the overall dimension, tensile strength, head and shank size for both standards are the same and no considerable difference is observed.
