Calculate Combined Tension and Shear Strength in Bearing Connections:
(Note: All input Metric units are converted to English units for the equations below and then the output English units are converted back to Metric)
AISC J3.7:
The following is for calculating the combined tension and shear strength in a bolt or threaded part.
Nominal unthreaded body area of bolt (Ab - sq in or sq mm)
Bolt nominal shear stress (Fnv - ksi or MPa)
Bolt nominal tensile stress (Fnt - ksi or MPa)
Required shear stress (fv - ksi or MPa)
