The solution to bearing stress problems!


If the bearing pressure under the nut face exceeds the compressive yield strength of the joint material, plastic deformation will occur. The preload loss from embedding determined by the program, assumes that the compressive yield strength is not exceeded. If it is, then such preload loss can increase uncontrollably. The program checks that the bearing pressure is within acceptable limits and if it is not, recommends a number of design alternatives.

Determination of the magnitude of the Bearing Stress.
The BOLTCALC program will determine the magnitude of the bearing stress under the nut/bolt head as well as within the joint itself. It compares this value with the permissible bearing stress for the material to establish if plastic collapse of the joint surface islikely.
