I have a flange of known thickness, with a bolt hole of a known diameter through it. I am trying to calculate the maximum angle off from the centerline through the bolt hole that the bolt will be able to pass ( I know the max diameter of the bolt as well ). Is there a formula for this, given that I know the flange thickness, bolt hole diameter, and bolt diameter? Thanks in advance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
