Ts = tensile strength,

UTS = tensile strength specified in Table 2, and As = stress area, square inches, as shown in ANSI B1.1 or calculated as follows:

As = 0.785 (D – (0.974/n) )2 (2)


D = nominal thread size, and n = the number of threads per inch.

Additional Notes

  • Tensile and Hardness—All testing shall be performed after aging. The test specimens shall meet the requirements.
  • Stress Rupture—Stress rupture testing shall be conducted in accordance with in Above Table using a combination test bar in accordance with Test Methods E 292. Rupture must occur in the smooth section of each test specimen.
  • Headed fasteners with body length three times the diameter or longer shall be subjected to full size tensile test in accordance with Annex A3 of Test Methods and Definitions A 370 and shall conform to the tensile strength shown in Table 2. The minimum full size breaking strength (lbf) for individual sizes shall be as follows:
    Ts = UTS X As (1)

ASTM A1014 Heat Treatment

  • Solution Treatment—Material shall be solution heat treated at a temperature within the range of 1725 to 1850°F (941 to 1010°C), held at the selected temperature for a time commensurate with cross-sectional thickness, and cooled at a rate equivalent to an air cool or faster.
  • Temperature Variation—Solution treating temperatures shall be controlled in the range of ± 25°F (± 14°C).

ASTM A1014 Metallography

  • Microstructure—The microstructure shall be free of freckles, white spots, and Laves phases. Threads may show evidence of cold working as a result of rolling. The average grain size shall be determined in accordance with Test Methods E 112 and found to be ASTM No 5 or finer. Up to 20 % of the structure may have a grain size as large as a No. 3 due to the presence of noncrystallized grains.
  • Macrostructure—Fasteners produced from forgings shall exhibit continuous flow lines in the threads and in any shank to head or fillet and/or bearing surface areas.
