## How to calculate bolt load from AMSE BPVC. VIII. 1

(OP)

Can someone help with an example of how to calculate required bolt load using AMSE BPVC. VIII. 1

I have tried it but it seem confusing

Bolt size: 2"

Bolt material: A193 B8 Class 2

Can someone help with the steps from beginning to the end?

if yes, use formula of torque.

T = KFD

K = 0.2 F IS LOAD PER BOLT D is minor dia.

I still need help to calculate the required torque value of the following

Bolt size: 2"

Bolt material: A193 B8 Class 2

D should be the nominal diameter.

Kindly help confirm if this is correct.

Stress = Force/Area

Force = Stress X Area

Stress = Bolt Yield = 105000 Psi (For A320 L7 from ASME B31.3)

Force = Bolt Load = ?

Area = Tensile Stress Area = 0.6057 sq.in (For 1” bolt from ASME PCC-1)

Force (Bolt Load) = 105000 X 0.6057

= 63598.5 lb

Kindly confirm if this can be used to calculate bolt load before using T=KFD to calculate the torque value
