  Screw - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Threaded fasteners are traditionally made by a cutting action such as taps and dies provide, however recent advances in tooling allows them to be made by rolling the blank (a section of rod) between two specially machined dies.
The diameter of a metric screw is the outer diameter of the thread.
The thread angle was 55┬░and a depth and pitch of thread that varied with the diameter of the thread (ie: the bigger the bolt, the coarser the thread).

 Thread tapping screw - Patent 5061135
The intersection of the radiused thread profile 31 and the cylindrical core 16 of the screw which occurs at 32 does not create a condition where the surface 33 of the core is tangential to the radius 22.
The screw moves axially forward 77 under the influence of the rotation 76 of the helical form of the screw thread generated around a cylindrical bore, and initial "starting" end pressure 78 being exerted in the direction shown.
As the screw moves forward under the above-mentioned influence, there is created a condition of deformation of the nut anchor material in a manner that increases the thread profile depth contact of the mating threads, as a consequence of the thread profile form of the present invention.

 Screw thread - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A screw thread is a helical or tapered structure used to convert between rotational and linear movement or force.
In most applications, the thread pitch of a screw is chosen so that friction is sufficient to prevent linear motion being converted to rotary, that is so the screw does not slip even when linear force is applied so long as no external rotational force is present.
A screw thread may be thought of as an inclined plane wrapped around a cylinder or cone.

 Screw thread Calculations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
If a screw threaded fastener is to fail it is preferable that the screw fails rather than the internal or external thread strips.
The size of a screwed fastener is first established by calculating the tensile load to be withstood by the screw and selecting a suitable screw to withstand the tensile load with the appropriate factor of safety or preload.
To ensure that the screw fails before the thread strips it is necessary the the shear area is at least 2 times the tensile area.

 Advanced Thread - The L.S. Starrett Company
Other thread characteristics such as lead, flank angle, taper and roundness variations are confined within these limits with no specific control of their magnitudes.
The differential is considered the size of the thread, with all of its variation in lead, flank angle, taper, and out-of-round, minus the Pitch diameter.
One of the sizes, pitch diameter, is the size of the thread with essentially zero variation in all other thread elements, while the other size, GO functional size, is the size of the thread with the effects of all variations in all other thread elements added to the pitch diameter.

 Screw comparison guide - screw threads
This pattern uses two threads around the shank for increased driving speed, is commonly used on drywall screws, and sometimes has a high/low design.
The unthreaded portion of the shank is the same diameter as the major diameter of the threaded portion, and the root diameter tapers to the tip.
The thread depth is consistent along the length of the screw, even in the tapered portion, accentuating the pointed appearance.

 screw thread systems for fasteners   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
In the United States, the convention for describing threads is to give the number of threads per inch, preceded by a gauge number if the bolt is smaller than a quarter-inch in diameter, otherwise by the diameter in fractions of an inch.
The relationship between diameter and number of threads per inch is standardized in a number of series, the most common in the United States being UNC and UNF.
Such a fastener is said to have a right-hand thread; all screw fasteners are assumed to be right-hand unless otherwise specified.
