Problem 117 Find the smallest diameter bolt that can be used in the clevis shown in Fig. 1-11b if P = 400 kN. The shearing strength of the bolt is 300 MPa.

Solution 117

$400(1000) = 300[ \, 2(\frac{1}{4} \pi d^2) \, ]$

$d = 29.13 \, \text{mm}$ answer

How did it became 400*1000?

the 400KN force was converted to Newton (N), ie (400 * 1000)N = 400,000N

why use 2 @ area calculation

The bolt is subjected to double shear.
