Clamp connector

  1. Aug 19, 2015 #1
    hi Gents,
    i am checking bending moment for hub connector. The manufacturer send me two values of maximum bending moment- one value due to primary load and one value due to primary load + secondary load. If you have any experience on checking bending moment of hub, please advise what value we should use?

    The rule of thumb I have always used that should get to working tightness somewhere in the middle 2/3s of the clamp, if when tightened the clamp is at the bottom end of its adjustable tightness the clamp is too big and likewise, if it gets tight at the top end the clamp is too small. although it would help if you mentioned what type of clamp your working with.
