Current Topic:
Why loosening torque is lesser than the tightening torque for bolts/screws
The value of a mathematical model is in the accuracy of predicting real world phenomenon.  If you oversimplify the mathematical model (like perfect geometry, static friction is same as dynamic friction & no chemical interaction between the surfaces, no creep, no yield), you can predict something that doesn't reflect reality.
