A Review on Bolt Load Retention Test of Magnesium Alloys
The bolt load retention (BLR) test fixtures and behaviors of Mg alloys by main research teams are reviewed. Parts of BLR test results are also presented. Since creep properties are relevant to BLR, an approach to predicting BLR behaviors from creep curves is briefly introduced. The BLR test fixtures and procedures in our study are also shown.
