2020 3 27 nbsp 0183 32 The shear strength of a grade 8 bolt is 90 000 psi assuming the bolt is between 1 4 inch to 1 inch Shear strength is typically estimated to be 60 percent of tensile strength All grade 8 bolts have the same tensile strength per square inch Thus the larger the bolt 19 rows nbsp 0183 32 1993 1 8 nbsp 0183 32 Shear strength of bolts The shear resistance of the bolt per shear plane F v Rd is provided in EN1993 1 8 Table 3 4 F v Rd α v ⋅ f ub ⋅ A γ M2 where α v is a coefficient that takes values α v 0 6 for bolt classes 4 6 5 6 8 8 or α v 0 5 for bolt classes 4α v Arlen The minimum shear strength of one 3 4 10 grade 8 bolt is approximately 30 060lbs so we don t see a scenario where your 5 000lb car should bend or break any of the bolts Jack stands are typically rated from 3 to 12 tons so we d think that 2002 10 22 nbsp 0183 32 The ultimate strength Fu of Grade 8 8 bolts are 800 MPa and its shear strength Fv is 145 MPa when threads are on the shear plane and 210 MPa when the treads are exccluded from the shear plane For Diameter 5 8 quot 16mm Shear strength is 30 kN when threads are included in the shear plane and 40 kN when treads are excluded from the shear plane ASTM A325 Bolt Dimensions Chart Sizes Strength ASTM A325 bolts are one of the most commonly used fasteners usually used for structural steel connections in heavy steel structures It contains two types of quenched and tempered steel heavy hex structural bolts Type 3 weathering steel Type 2 withdrawn in 1991

The Tensile force on Bolt in Shear formula is defined as the maximum load that can be supported prior to fracture when applied at a right angle to the fastener s axis A load occurring in one transverse plane is known as single shear and is represented as P pi d c h S sy f s or Tensile Force pi Core Diameter Height of Nut Shear Yield Strength Factor of safety Shear and Tension Capacity of Stainless Steel Bolts The shear capacity of a bolt Psb should be taken as Psb psb As where psb is the shear strength of bolt As is the shear area usually taken as the tensile stress area unless it can be guaranteed that the threaded portion will be excluded from the shear plane in which case it can be taken as the unthreaded shank area bolt shear strength To take full advantage of strength properties the shank of the bolt body should be within the shear planes To illustrate consider the difference in shear strength between the two Grade 8 bolts on the previous page one with the threads in the 2017 01 07 nbsp 0183 32 There exists an often quoted myth that Grade 5 bolts are better in shear than Grade 8 since they will bend before breaking Not true Shear strength of alloy steel is approximately 60 of its ultimate tensile strength Reference to Table 1 shows that the yield strength of a Grade 8 bolt is higher than the ultimate strength of a Grade 5 bolt In the event your use of this calculator results in the need for servicing repair or correction of equipment or data you assume any costs or expense for such needs I accept the terms and conditions set forth above Standard Non Structural Bolts Bolt Diameter in 1 4 5 16 3 8 7 16 1 2 9 16 5 8 3 4 7 8 1 1 1 8 1 1 4 1 3 8 1 1 2
