Re: Steel bolts pulled thru steel plate

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You didn't give any details on the member or plate geometry. If the geomtery
is rather complex I suggest modeling the plate using any FEM software (i.e..

You can place your restraints on the bolt points and and distribute the
tensile force between the points on the member-plate interface, include any
stiffeners if present. If more realistic modeling is required constrain
joints on the member-plate interface for translation.
