Question: two plates are bolted together one bolt with initial clamping...

Question details

Two plates are bolted together (one bolt) with initial clamping force (F) of 1000 lbs. The bolt stiffness (kb) is twice the clamping material stiffness (km) Given: a) Determine the external separating load that would reduce the clamping force to 250 lbs. (i.e. Fm.--250 lbs.). Find: e) Select a SAE grade 2 (Sp 55 ksi) UNC bolt (from the table on the back) that would withstand this load, using a load factor of 2.
