    Revision of F2482 - 08(2015) Standard Specification for Load-Indicating Externally Threaded Fasteners

    (What is a Work Item?)

    The rationale for revision is to improve the usefulness of this standard by expanding the scope of included technology Classification Types, add greater definition to Performance Requirements section, and provide general updating to bring into alignment with current ASTM standards such as consideration for inclusion in Metric sizes. Section 1.3 Reduced Loadability was added to give greater definition to strength of externally threaded load indicating fasteners. The table of Grades and Classification was removed to allow for broader material grades and classes beyond the strictly ASTM grades included. Additionally, the data within this table can grow out of date and create discrepancies. Section 8.2 was updated to include a new Load Tolerance performance specification that enables various tolerances of load indication accuracy to suit the application needs and sensor capabilities. Field tests section 8.3 was updated to allow reference of a Manufacturers Certificate of Calibration.
