Subject: Eccentrically Loaded Bolts
> I'm confused and hope someone can help me. I have to size eccentrically
> loaded bolts. I have two text book that I've been using as a reference.
> is "Applied Structural Steel Design" by Leonard Seiegel and George F.
> Limbrunner. The other is "Applied Strength of Materials" by Robert L.
> The two books differ in their representation of forces on the bolts.
> Namely, the force "Rp" which is due to the axial effect of the eccentric
> load and "Rm" due to the torsional moment effect. One is totally opposite
> from the other and I'm not quite sure which is correct. If a load, "P" is

> clockwise. So, will the force, "Rp" also be clockwise or counterclockwise?
> Thank you in advance.
