Abstract: The capabilities of analytic models in predicting the experimental critical displacements of the self-loosening of bolted-joints were investigated experimentally and numerically. The experimental loosening rates were determined in a Junker test bench at a constant transverse displacement amplitude (0.45 mm) and under varying initial clamp force and clamp length and controlled bearing and thread friction coefficients. The analytic critical displacements were then calculated using experimental parameters. In addition, a three-dimensional accompanying finite element (FE) model was developed in order to calculate the ratio of spring constants engaging the thread to spring. The results showed relatively low capabilities of present analytic model in the prediction of the critical displacements of the self-loosening of bolted-joints. The efforts to modify the nut reaction moment and the inclination compliance of bolt head portion in the investigated equations however resulted moderate increase in the appropriate predictions. On the other side, the use of the reaction moment determined by FE model increased the appropriate prediction from 58.3 to 73.4%. The accuracy of the equations was further increased by the use of an appropriate kw value, but the increase in this case was only ~4%.
