Shear Strength of M20 Bolt

Shear Strength of M20 Bolt

Can someone tell me how to calculate the Shear strength of an M20 Bolt given the Tensile and yield strength from BS3692

RE: Shear Strength of M20 Bolt

I am not sure about BS standard and whether this would help in any case, you may check ASTM A193 where in they have given standard values expected out of a given bolt (Test with the head on) also you may check A660, where in they refer to stress rupture test. In case of nuts Refer A 194, for shear area calculation for proof load tests.
