A section of steering linkage. One thing that all tie rods have in common is that the outer end always attaches directly to the knuckle. Toe angle – A steering geometry term; see diagram. Toe - A boney, multi-jointed, flesh-covered appendage on your foot, normally found in sets of five.
Devises, usually rods or assemblies made from rod and pipe whose primary function is to react the full Pressure Thrust at operating and test conditions, and to allow lateral offset. They can also function as limit stops to prevent over travel of the individual bellows elements of a universal expansion joint, and to stabilize the center spool of a universal expansion joint.
(1) A device consisting of a steel rod, threaded at both ends for nuts, for tying sections of dies together either by design or to repair a die which has been broken. (2) Steel rods, threaded at both ends for nuts, used to hold the bed, uprights, and crown of a press together under a predetermined compressive load.
A tie rod is a slender structural rod used as a tie and capable of carrying tensile loads only. Since the ratio of its length to the radius of gyration of its cross section is usually very large, it would buckle under the action of compressive forces. Tie rods are used for airplane structures and in steel structures such as bridges, industrial buildings, tanks, towers and cranes.
