    Bolt series connection

    Rajan P

      I have three plates connected by bolt connector. First and last plate have clearance hole and middle plate have threaded hole. The bolt is fastened to middle plate and finally fastened with nut on far end of third plate.


      I have to extract bolt forces (Shear and tensile) from the bolt connectors command using following assumption. I have attached picture of the same. Can any help in fixing the above problem.

          is your question how to setup the bolt series?


          in the end you're probably not going to be able to acheive everything you want with a bolt connector, it seems like a very specialized situation. i'd suggest doing some experimentation with multiple bolts and worst case model it and extract the forces manually
