This article discusses the effect of thread design, preload, tightening, and mean stress on the fatigue strength of bolt steel. It describes the factors influencing fatigue failures in cold-driven and hot-driven riveted joints. The factors affecting the fatigue resistance of bolted friction joints are also discussed. The article reviews stress concentrations in pin joints and discusses stress-intensity factors for mechanically fastened joints.
