Prevailing torque

Torque required to run a nut down against the joint when some obstruction, such as a plastic insert in the threads, or a noncircular thread, or other, has been introduced to help the fastener resist vibration loosening.  Prevailing torque, unlike
“normal” torque on a nut or bolt, is not proportional to the Preload in the fastener.
