Pin Loaded Holes

Pin Loaded Holes

Does anyone know of any good reference materials for designing pin loaded holes?

RE: Pin Loaded Holes

You could try ESDU-Structures sheet 91008, which deals with the strength of lugs.

RE: Pin Loaded Holes

Thanks for replying but what is ESDU structures?

RE: Pin Loaded Holes

ESDU (Engineering Sciences Data Unit) is an international organization which provides validated engineering design data, methods and software for the engineer.
You can find contact addresses and telephone numbers on their web site:
Hope this is helpful.

RE: Pin Loaded Holes

AISC presents some lug design criteria in both the LRFD book (Load and Resistance Factor Design) and ASD (Allowable Stress Design).  These books are readily available and most civil engineers and a significant number of mechanicals that are involved in any structural design will have it.  In ASD, 9th edition it is located in Chapter D, page 5-40 to 5-41.

Good Luck

White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
