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.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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!
