Abstract
Analysis of double strap bolted lap joint was carried out using Finite Element Method (FEM). Angle of interfacial pressure distribution between the plates to be joined using preloaded bolted connection has been a debatable point though widely researched. Shigale's Pressure cone approach for the determination of the stiffness of the joint material had been used by many designers with fixed cone angle 300. This angle of interfacial pressure distribution is affected by many factors including the plate thicknesses, bolt head diameter, plate material etc. Numerical modelling has been carried out on models with 8mm, 12 mm and 16mm thick cover plates pre-compressed using M16 bolts. The results emphasize significance of the half cone angle in the calculation of stiffness of the cover plate in the bolted connection.
