Beam and bolt shear force

  1. Oct 16, 2008 #1
    if a beam has a shear force limit of x
    and a bolt that is passing through the beam has a shear force limit of y
    and y < x would the maximum allowable shear force for the whole system become y?

    So far the whole system is a mystery to me. Why don't you describe the exact case?
