Force Calculations for bolted Joints

Bolted joints are often tightened to 75% to 80% of bolt proof load. This amount of tightening, a rule of thumb, is suitable for many joints, but in some cases, external tensile loads can reduce bolt clamping force to zero. Thus, for some joints, values other than 75% or 80% are needed.
