Bottom of bolt head compressing against the material it is holding

  1. Jun 4, 2010 #1
    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!
