Screw Shear Area Calculator

The shear area is a cross- sectional property and is defined as the area of the section which is effective in resisting shear deformation. This value is always less than the gross area of the section and is also referred to as the form factor. Make use of this screw shear area calculator to calculate for the external thread shear area based on the minimum pitch dia external thread, maximum minor diameter internal thread, fastener thread engagement, and threads per inch.

Result :

The internal thread shear area is over 40% larger than the external thread shear area. The screw shear area calculator is useful in many mechanical engineering applications.
