If you simply want to learn how to execute a TC bolt pre-installation verification test using Skidmore-Wilhelm bolt tension measuring device you can get access to this module by registering below:
Pre-installation verification allows installers and inspectors to be confident that the sheared TC bolts in the connection have the required pretension to support the joint.
Installed TC bolts have a sheared end that provides an excellent visual indicator that the correct torque has been applied to tighten the bolt.
If the TC bolt assemblies have been properly tested in a bolt tension calibrator the sheared ends also indicate that the correct tension has been achieved in the bolt.
Testing = Quality
This course provides the guidance needed to successfully test TC Bolt installations. Understanding proper testing procedures builds confidence in the quality of fastening installations.
