Hi all, I am trying to find the slope of a T-stub joint at the bolt in order to find the bending stress of the bolt. I have drawn 1/2 of the T-stub as a beam. The beam analysis requires (for physicality) that the slope at each side of the beam to be zero. There is an applied load, a bolt load, and a prying load. This problem is certainly statically indeterminate... I have tried a few methods of circumventing this (superposition, deflection equations) yet still always end up with 1 more unknown than equation. Can anyone take a look and see if (a) im making the right assumptions, and (b) how to tackle this problem? Much appreciated!
