Bearing Strength at Bolt Holes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't know if this will answer your question directly, but it may point you 
in the right direction.

Going back to *rivets*, the bearing limitation was based on the plate 
deforming plastically, bunching up under the rivet head and popping it off.

Since rivets begat HSB, I would imagine that there is some correlation there.

Hope this helps.

in LRFD Spec 12/1/93, particularly a reference that provides the origin and 
derivation of the equations in this section. I looked in my 3rd edition of 
Salmon and Johnson, which is tied into the 1989 LRFD Spec, but nevertheless 
has a basic equation (4.6.5) upon which it would appear the LRFD equations 
would come from. But I can't seem to get there from here. (Actually the Spec 
equations themselves seem to be in a less than straight forward form).
