Boltvibe app (simulator) for Mechanical Engineering students

BoltVibe App (emulator), for android phone/tablet and iPhone/iPad, is the only available engineering software tool that can calculate whether (or not) a tightened threaded fastener system would loosen under in-service vibration forces. Initially the trial version of app was used by ME seniors in ME486 Design course in Oakland University as an emulator for understanding complex theory of vibration-induced bolt loosening.
