Beyond Junker: A paradigm shift in validating and optimising bolted joints
14 March 2019
By By Morten Schiff, chief executive officer, Vibrationmaster
Validating and optimising bolted joint design delivers safety and performance improvements, alongside streamlining costs. There is now a powerful new vibration test methodology using controlled shear force loading. It is significantly more advanced than traditional – and flawed – displacement amplitude-driven Junker testing. This new approach enables users to test bolted joints for resistance to rotational self-loosening under real-world conditions.
