THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF INTERNAL THREADS IN THREE MATERIALS

In terms of nominal stress, the fatigue strength of internally threaded specimens appears to be similar to that of comparable externally threaded specimens in brass <60:40>, and normalized, hardened and tempered steels. The method of manufacture has a large influence upon the fatigue strength. In high tensile steel, grinding of internal threads gives a low fatigue strength and should be avoided if possible.
