Screws are the most commonly used orthopaedic implant, however they are frequently overtightened when inserted. Using screw, bone and screw hole characteristics, maximum torque for a screw hole is predicted prior to insertion. Using this, optimum tightness as a percentage of the maximum torque is investigated as functions of compression and pullout forces. This data set provides the raw data for these investigations. The methodology is described in detail in the related manuscript: Fletcher, J.,...
