We have a slab with uniform distrubuted load on it W. All dimensions.
I'm looking for the force on the bolts and force on the hook contact surface.
The Attempt at a Solution
My way to do it is to reduce the problem for 2D. But the problem is that i'm not sure how to solve this then. Because in 2D drawing we will be left with 6 bolts (3 each side) and 2 contact surface from hook).
The question I have:
1. The force that I will get is the half of the possible for this construction? Because I have other half of this construcion not calculated.
2. Is it not to many unknows? There is 6 force acting on each bolt and 2 pressure force acting on the bracket hook. How to find this forces? I know only dimensions and the pressure on the slab (the weigh of it is neglected)
