Book Description

April 28, 1998 0824799771 978-0824799779 1
Presenting time-tested standard as well as reliable emerging knowledge on threaded fasteners and joints, this book covers how to select parts and materials, predict behavior, control assembly processes, and solve on-the-job problems. It examines key issues affecting bolting in the automotive, pressure vessel, petrochemical, aerospace, and structural steel industries. The editors have successfully created a useful rather than scholarly handbook with chapters written in a straightforward, how-to-do-it manner. Theory is discussed only when necessary and the handbook's logical organization and thorough index enhances its usefulness.

2.0 out of 5 stars Do not waste you money to buy this book September 13, 2001
Format:Hardcover
Contrary to what the title suggest, this is not a "handbook". The book is composed from the loose articles written by approximately 30 authors. Every article written in different convention, different language, different approach.
The book contains very limited amount of practical, "handbook like" information, charts, formulas, suggestions, etc. Some chapters are very superficial, the chapter 29, to name only one, "Torque Control of Assembly" completly misses the point. This is neither handbook nor academic textbook.I am dissapointed. I woudn't recomment this book to anybody.

4.0 out of 5 stars A detailed and authoritative source on bolted joints November 18, 2000
Format:Hardcover
The reviewed volume focusing on non-gasketed bolted joints offers expanded coverage on the design and behavior of bolted joints and includes new chapters such as those on different types of bolts, production techniques, and quality issues. The editors were successful in making the handbook "useful rather than scholarly" as the chapters are written in a straightforward manner that focuses on "how-to-do-it or what-to-do information" and on the state of the art. For the most part, theory is discussed only when necessary leaving it mostly for the reader to follow up using the extensive references to scholarly sources and national standards at the end of each chapter. The handbook's logical organization and thorough index enhances its usefulness.
Those new to the subject or seeking theory would probably get more from An Introduction to the Design and Behavior of Bolted Joints but those seeking more detailed information or needing a thorough reference would be better served with the Handbook of Bolts and Bolted Joints. The Handbook of Bolts and Bolted Joints is recommended
