    Cyclic Loading of Fastener and Fatigue

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to determine the life of the threads in a particular application, specifically, I'm trying to come up with rationale to justify ability of my design to withstand cyclic loading over the course of the product life.

    See image attached.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I could justify the verification of the design?
    To me it's clear it will survive the application, very little load is applied, but the designer in charge is worried about galling.

    To you it is clear. To the designer it is not. We do not have enough information. The ones that count are those purchasing and/or using the product.

    Take the tested sample to those who issued the specification and ask for their opinion if there are doubts.

    Just my thoughts.

    If this becomes a major issue then there is: ASTM G98 - 17 -Standard Test Method for Galling Resistance of Materials that can be utilized but it does not apply specifically to threaded assemblies.
