We have this scenario as shown below. Given the thickness of the plate & diameter of the bolt. I am not worried much about the pull-through of the connection, but I have to show proof / document that it will not fail. Is there a code showing this ? I know there is this formula in ADM (Aluminum Design Manual), but it is only for thin aluminum plates & self tapping screws. I am not sure if it will be applicable to steel plates & bolts. I checked in AISC 360, but nothing about pull through of material connected to the head of the countersunk bolt. Hoping for your help.
Your responses are highly appreciated.
