Failure of the joint

Failure of a bolted joint to behave as intended by the designer. Failure can be caused or accompanied by broken or lost bolts, but can also mean joint slip or leakage from a gasketed joint even if all bolts still remain whole and in place.  Common reasons for joint failure include vibration loosening, poor assembly practices, improper design, unexpected service loads or conditions, etc.
