Fastener installation prestress sigma_i = pct(Su), where Su = bolt
material ultimate tensile strength (UTS), and pct = percentage of Su.
You can typically use pct = about 0.53 for unlubricated and about 0.57
for lubricated; and Su strength values can be found at
http://www.americanfastener.com/techcharts.htm. Bolt installation
torque T = K(D)(pct)(Su)(Ats), where K = torque coefficient, D = bolt
nominal shank diameter, and Ats = bolt tensile stress area from, e.g.,
http://euler9.tripod.com/bolt-database/bolt-database11.html. For clean
steel on steel, many people assume K = 0.15 for lubricated (greased),
or K = 0.20 for "unlubricated" (thin lubricant film, as manufactured).
Typically K = about 1.33(mu), if mu = mu2, where mu = thread
coefficient of friction and mu2 = bolt head or nut washer face
coefficient of friction. Good luck.
