Bolted joints are often underestimated in terms of their importance. Inadequate design of bolt connections can have disastrous consequences. A deficient design of bolts can lead to failures of systems and machines, which usually result in high repair costs. Depending on the application, a failure of the connection can become a life-threatening situation in worst case.

In our two-part HEICO webinar ‘Bolted Joint Calculation - The Basics’ we explain clearly how bolts and components behave
when they are clamped and show which loads and forces act on the bolted joint.
Learn to calculate your bolt connections according to VDI 2230 guideline, taking into account all relevant parameters.

In our webinar you will acquire basics in the field of bolt calculation as well as extensive knowledge of effective bolt securing.

Target Group
Our webinar primarily aims designers, engineers, technicians and developers, teachers in educational institutions, specialists from the R&D field and users with previous technical knowledge.

Part 2 - Dimensioning

  • Dimensioning of bolted joints acc. to VDI-guideline 2230
  • Types of loading & failure criteria
  • Main dimensioning formula
  • Tightening factor, minimum clamp load, working load, axial resilience, preload loss
