ASME B18.31.3-2014 pdf download.Threaded Rods (Inch Series).
1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Scope This Standard covers the general and dimensional data for inch series threaded rods. Included are the fol- lowing thread configurations and diameters: (a) UNC threads #4 through 4 in. (b) UNF threads #4 through 1 1 ⁄ 2 in. (c) 8UN threads 1 1 ⁄ 8 in. through 4 in. (d) Acme threads 1 ⁄ 4 in. through 5 in. At this time, there are no ISO standards for inch threaded rods. The inclusion of dimensional data in this Standard is not intended to imply that all of the products described herein are stock production sizes. Consumers should consult with suppliers concerning lists of stock produc- tion sizes. 1.2 Dimensions All dimensions in this Standard are in inches, unless otherwise specified. 1.3 Terminology For definitions ofterminology not specifically defined in this Standard, refer to ASME B18.12. 1.4 Referenced Standards Unless otherwise specified, the standards referenced shall be the most recent at the time of order placement.

The length of the threaded rod shall be measured, overall, from end to end. The length tolerance on all threaded rods in nominal lengths of 6 ft and longer shall be ± 1 ⁄ 2 in., and ± 1 ⁄ 4 in. for nominal lengths less than 6 ft. See Fig. 1.
2.2 Threads Unified threads shall conform to the requirements of ASME B1.1. For UNC and UNF threads, Class 1A will be furnished unless otherwise specified. Class 2A shall be applicable for 8UN threads and at the manufacturer’s option for other series, and for sizes where Class 1A is not applicable. Plated threads shall conform to ASME B1.1, Class 3A high limit (basic) and the low limit requirement of the before-coated or plated thread class. Acme threads shall meet the requirements of ASME B1.5, Class 2G. Table 1 contains the thread diameter and threads per inch combinations for Unified and Acme thread sizes considered standard. 2.3 Thread Acceptance Gaging Unless otherwise specified by the purchaser, gaging for screw thread dimensional acceptability shall be in accordance with Gaging System 21 as specified in ASME B1.3. 2.4 Ends The ends shall be of sufficient workmanship to allow for easy assembly with an appropriate mating nut. 2.5 Straightness When required, straightness limits and the inspection technique to be used to evaluate straightness shall be agreed upon between the purchaser and the supplier. 2.6 Materials and Mechanical Requirements The purchaser must specify the applicable specifica- tion for the threaded rod material. The material shall meet the chemical and mechanical properties of the applicable specification. Listed below are some of the primary material specifications for threaded rod. Other materials may be specified by the purchaser.
