Minimum Thread Engagement Formula and Calculation ISO

The screw should fail before the thread strips. For this, it is necessary the shear area of the threaded feature be at least 2 times the tensile area. (Assuming the threaded feature is of the identical material).

All units shall be consistant and given in inches.
