The BoltFASTR package aids in determining the fatigue endurance limit of a thread, the amount of embedding anticipated in the joint, and the optimal tightening torque for given friction conditions. There are three main components included: (1) the joint analysis program, which determines a bolted joint's capability in sustaining force, (2) the threaded analysis program, which calculates the forces necessary to strip the internal and external threads and fracture a fastener, and (3) the torque analysis program, which determines the correct tightening torque and the resulting anticipated clamp force for a threaded fastener.
