was working with the torque wrench today on some very delicate roadie parts.
I remember touching on a subject at uni for maybe half a lecture about the importance of torque settings and how you get dry and lubed torque settings.
i remember there was an equation relating to coefficient of friction of the lubricant and the dry torque value given.
Looking at the torque sheets i was working off it just specified torque , neither dry nor lubed jst specified torque to be 40-50 Nm for one and 8Nm for another and 4 Nm for another
Are manufacturers torque values for dry assembly or lubed assembly(and if so is there a generic lube that its specified with ? )
or do they just not bother with this faff and just specify any old torque they see fit (as most of the bike trade doesnt seem to fall into any of the engineering stuff i learned at uni)
