Abstract


A simple method has been developed to calculate the body surface area of screws combining descriptive geometry concepts with digital image analysis. This one can also be applied to the other threaded fasteners. One of purpose of this work is to assist researchers in corrosion tests in which the exposed area of a screw is a very important parameter.
