The behavior of bolted joints in component systems with relatively small fastening systems, critical materials or with high loading level often shows significant yielding effects with reduction of preload. Thus, poor reliability or even failures are possible. This problem requires an adaptation of the established analytical engineering design methods. A new approach with consideration of over-elastic behavior and preload history is proposed. Examples refer to magnesium components, contact pressure and tightening with angular control.
