Learn how to calculate external screw thread dimensions with this easy-to-follow guide. Calculate pitch, major diameter, minor diameter, and more with our free calculator.
A mechanical calculator that calculates the shear area of an external thread (screw or fastener) based on the minor diameter of the tapped hole is available.
- Kn max = Maximum minor diameter of internal thread
- Es min = Minimum pitch diameter of external thread
- Le = Fastener thread engagement
- n = Number of threads per inch
