The Monte Carlo simulation method is applied to quantify the probability of exceeding the maximum desired bolt exploitation for fasteners tightened to a torque specification. The simulation results are utilized to develop a method for the calculation of torque specifications such that the probability that a bolt will exceed the maximum desired bolt exploitation is thirty-two parts per million (ppm).
