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)
