I have a tapped hole. A threaded rod goes through the hole. A single nut secures the threaded rod in position. Only one plate is threaded. Note the clearance hole in the top plate. A picture is attached. A friction joint in a bolt occurs when the clamping force creates a normal force. This normal force is designed to be greater than the friction force between the plates. In this way a bolt does not experience any shear load. I want to know whether or not a threaded tapped joint can be a friction joint. Specifically, if the clamping force is large enough to prevent slip, then will any part of the threaded rod experience shear? Thanks.
