How to measure prying force in bolted connection
This is another useful construction tutorial from Dr. Chirag Patel. In this video, you will learn how to make detail measurement for "Prying Force" in bolted steel structural connection as well as remove it’s effect.
In a tension or hanger connection, the operative load creates tension in the bolts and the bolts are designed as tension members. If the connected plate is admissible to deform, supplementary tensile forces known as prying forces are developed in the bolts.
