Thread Measuring Wires per ASME B89.1.17

PITCH DIAMETER = MEASUREMENT OVER WIRES (MOW) – CONSTANT

W = Wire Size

P =Pitch = 1 / # of Threads per Inch = The distance the thread travels in one turn.

C = Constant = 3w - .86602540P

PD = Pitch Diameter = the halfway point between sharp major & minor diameters.

Measured PD = MOW  - (3w - 0.88602540P)
