Re: Steel bolts pulled thru steel plate

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A very neat and easy but a bit more advanced way of dealing with problems
like this one is to apply the yield line theory. You can find plastic
capacity of the plate subjected to the concentrated force transferred by the
bolt, then apply some saftey factor and reduce the force as your allowable
bolt force.   

I hope this helps.

Good luck,
