A steel plate, connected to a fixed channel using three identical bolts $A, B$ and $C$, carries a load of $6$ kN as shown in the figure. Considering the effect of direct load and moment, the magnitude of resultant shear force (in kN) on bolt $C$ is $13$ $15$ $17$ $30$
A bolted joint has four bolts arranged as shown in figure. The cross sectional area of each bolt is $25$ $mm^2$. A torque $T$ = $200N-m$ is acting on the joint. Neglecting friction due to clamping force, maximum shear stress in a bolt is ______ $MPa$.
A bolt of major diameter $12$ $mm$ is required to clamp two steel plates. Cross sectional area of the threaded portion of the bolt is $84.3$ $mm^2$. The length of the threaded portion in grip is $30$ $mm$, while the length of the unthreaded portion in grip is $8$ $mm$. Young's modulus of material is $200$ $GPa$. The effective stiffness (in $MN/m$) of the bolt in the clamped zone is_______
