Clamp force divide by surface ?

  1. Apr 13, 2014 #1
    hi, newbies here !

    found clamp load in some catalogue for bolt and screw.

    is that value should divide by 2 since bolt is connect 2 surface together ?

    by the way, i am try to solidworks simulation,
    want to apply force on a surface to see how it respond on that surface
    both surface/body is same material

    what if these 2 surfaces are connect with 2 screw
    do i multiply the clamp load by 2 again ?
