Abstract

A great deal of work has been done since 1950 to improve the design of the bolted joint. In this paper a series of tests on a double shear bolted joint was performed both by finite elements methods and testing machine. The parameters of the study are the ratio R (tensile stress/bending stress) and the tightening torque Q. We notice that the maximum stress at the hole edge evolves according to R. The most loaded fasteners are located in the tensile part of the joint. The likeness of the distribution of str
