Re: bolt bending and shear

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Why not make the spacer(s) a washer of appropriate dimensions around the bolt
and weld it to the parent member (w/ a weld size and type sufficient to
develop the shear force), thus eliminating the gap and converting the bolt
force transfer mechanism to a case of ordinary single shear?
