Calculate Required Shear Stress of a Bolt:
(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 J3.6:
The following is for calculating required shear stress of a bolt or threaded part in a bearing connection.  This calculation can be used to calculate the required shear stress, fv, of a bolt in a bearing connection subjected to shear and tension.
Nominal unthreaded body area of bolt (Ab - sq in or sq mm)
Shear force on the bolt (Ru - kips or kN)
