• The influence shank area on the tensile impact strength of bolts 

    Love, Jr., John; Pringle, O.A. (University of Missouri, 1957)
    "The effect of reduction of shank cross-sectional area on the tensile impact strength of 5/16, 3/8, and 7/16-in. steel bolts was investigated experimentally. Low-carbon 3/8-in. bolts with rolled threads absorbed maximum ...
