Hi guys,

If you look at the picture I have included, where a bolt is forced in compression against the plate it is holding, to which example from Roark's would this condition be? (i.e. annular plate with a uniform annular line load, outer edge free; inner edge guided... etc?)

I am trying to match this situation to one of the many formulas for flat circular plates of constant thickness formula within Roarks.

Please advise!
