|Thread: Aluminium thread strength|
Can anyone help me?
I have an aluminium block that I need to tap an M8 hole in to hold 2 parts together, the joint will need to support a reasonable large weight. I have 2 options, either and 18mm long thread or a 12mm thread.
Can anyone tell me how much tensile strength I will lose if I use the 12mm instead of the 18mm?
