I'm looking for a theoretical treatement of bolt group analysis. I have seen allot of examples / theory on off axis shearing forces on a bolt group, although I am looking for an analysis where you would have a bolt group and you pull on it in tension eccentrically, and then calculate the resultant bolt loads. I believe the same method is used whether the applied load is off axis shear or off axis tension, although I have never seen a design example with off axis tension. I believe the two methods are the elastic method and center of rotation method.
