... in the vicinity of one of the pillow-block bolt holes. The cracking appeared to fully penetrate the yoke section immediately below the pillow blocks on one side of the yoke. No external evidence of corrosion was found; however, it was noted that the corrosion protection scheme was severely damaged in places...

... installations were examined. It was found that fracture of the bolts was by intergranular stress corrosion. A metallic copper-containing antiseizure compound on the bolts in a corrosive medium set up an electro-chemical cell that produced trenchlike fissures or pits for fracture initiation. Because the bolts...

... examination of a failed bolt showed the path of the fracture and the secondary cracking associated with it were intergranular, suggesting that failure resulted from stress corrosion. A steel of the rimming type had been used to make the bar from which the bolt was forged. Cracks which originate at the root...

... or cold forging, depending on the type of material and size of the bolt. In addition to being a relatively low-cost manufacturing method, forging provides smooth, unbroken metal flow through the head-to-shank fillet, which closely follows the external contour of the bolt ( Fig. 5 ) and thus minimizes...
