- TL;DR Summary
- Is there a difference between clamping force calculation for screws (threaded holes) vs bolts (clearance holes + nut)?

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to figure out the clamping force of a set of screws that thread into a plate.

My question is:

I’ve attached a picture of the basic design I’m working with.

Thanks

I’m trying to figure out the clamping force of a set of screws that thread into a plate.

My question is:

- Would this calculation differ from calculating the clamping force of a bolt with a nut?
- What would be the difference in how the fasteners/members would react to a tensile load?

I’ve attached a picture of the basic design I’m working with.

Thanks
