BEng (Civil), MEng, PhD, PE, CEng, FIStructE
January 2003
Techno Consultants Ltd, 117 Portland Street, Manchester M1 6ED, England.

Fasten5950 is a an Excel Spreadsheet Template for finding capacities of Hexagon Head Bolts,
Countersunk Bolts, High Strength Friction Grip Bolts, Fillet Welds and Butt Welds using
BS5950-1:2000..

It also includes data worksheets for detailing bolts. The information includes: dimensions of bolts and
nuts, washers, various bolt hole sizes, spacing of holes and back marks, bolt symbols, etc.

The Tensile Stress Areas are taken from BS 4190 for Ordinary Black Bolts, BS 3692 for Precision Bolts
and BS 4933 for Countersunk Bolts. The Tensile Stress Areas and Proof Loads for HSFG Bolts are
taken from BS 4395: Part 1 for General Grade and BS 4395: Part 2 for Higher Grade (Parallel Shank).
Scope & method details of various worksheets are described below.

Non-preloaded Hexagon Head & Countersunk Bolts


This worksheet calculates various capacities: Tensile, Single Shear, Double Shear and Bearing for
various Ply thicknesses. The features are:

Bolt Heads can be: Normal or Countersunk

Bolt Grades can be: 4.6, 6.8, 8.8, 10.9 and HSFG General and HSFG Higher Grade

Shear Plane can be: Bolt Threads or Shank


When Shear Plane in the Shank is selected, a warning is displayed to remind that Threads should not be
in the Shear Plane and that the use of many washers may be necessary to achieve it.

Bolt Holes can be Clearance, Over-size, Short-slotted, Long-slotted and Kidney-shaped

Bolt Diameters are: M1.6, M2, M2.5, M3, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10, M12, (M14), M16, (M18), M20,
(M22), M24, (M27), M30, (M33), M36, (M39), M42, (M45), (M52), M56, (M60), M64 and (M68), the
sizes in brackets being non-preferred.

Hole Edge Distance can be any user-typed value from 1.25 to 2.0 of the Bolt Hole Diameter D.

Connected Ply Grades can be: S275, S355 and S460

Connected Ply Thicknesses can be any User-Typed Values. They can be changed at the head row of
bearing values (shown in light green cell background) to suit any value required for design.

The Combined Tension and Shear Capacity can also be calculated for each bolt diameter. For any
typed value of Applied Tension Ft, the corresponding Shear Capacity Fs of Threads or Shank is
displayed in the adjacent cell.

Three Colours and Font styles are used to display Bearing Capacities. Values below the single shear
capacity are displayed in Red and Normal font. Values above the single shear and below the double
shear capacity are displayed in Blue and Bold. Values above the double shear capacity are shown in
Green and Italic.

M20, M22, M24, M27, M30 and M33 for Higher Grade Bolts

Bolt Holes can be: Clearance, Oversize, Short Slotted and Long Slotted Perpendicular to Load and
Long-slotted parallel to load as defined in BS5950: Part 1

Slip Factor can be 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 and o.5, depending upon the condition of faying surfaces described in
Table 35 of the Code.

Design criteria for connections can be Non-slip in service and Non-slip under factored loads

Connected Ply Grades can be: S275, S355 and S460

Connected Ply Thicknesses can be any User-Typed Values. They can be changed at the head row of
bearing values (shown in light green cell background) to suit any value required for design.

The Combined Tension and Shear Capacity can also be calculated for each bolt diameter. For any
typed value of Applied Tension Ft, the corresponding Shear Capacity Fs of Threads or Shank is
displayed in the adjacent cell.

To display bearing capacities 3 colours and font styles are used. The values below the single shear
capacity are shown in Red and Normal font. The values above the single shear and below the double
shear capacity are shown in Blue and Bold. The values above the double shear capacity are shown in
Green and Italic.

Fillet Weld Capacities

Two worksheets give Fillet Weld Capacities for Steel Grades S275, S355 and S460, using E35, E42 and
E50 Electrodes.
One worksheet uses the Simple Method as per clause 6.8.7.2 and the other uses the Directional
Method as per Clause 6.8.7.3 of the code.

for finding capacities and detailing information for bolts and welds as and when required.

When use of a desktop computer is not available or intended, Fasten5950 can also be used to print
tables of bolt and weld capacities on paper. When used in this way, a total of 110 tables can be
produced: 36 for Ordinary bolts, 36 for Countersunk bolts, 36 for High Strength Friction Grip Bolts,
one for Fillet Welds and one for Butt Welds.

Start & Default Options of Fasten5950


When Fasten5950 is loaded, a HOME page is displayed on the screen for links to its various
worksheets. It selects a set of initial default values to ensure a standard start for minimizing usage
errors.

The initial default options for Non-preloaded bolts are: Hexagon Head Bolts, Shear Plane in Threads,
Bolt Grade 8.8, Connected Ply Grade: S275(43), Clearance Bolt Holes.

The initial default options for HSFG Bolts are: Hexagon Head Bolts, General Grade, 0.5 Slip Factor,
Non-slip under factored loads design criteria, Clearance Holes and Connected Ply Grade S275 (43).

Design Method
The design method is based on BS5950-1:2000 and BS4604:Parts 1& Part 2: 1970. Various details are
described below.

Non-preloaded Bolts:
Grades 4.6, 6.8, 8.8, 10.9, HSFG General Grade & HSFG Higher Grade

The shear capacity Ps is calculated as:


Ps = ps As
where
ps is the shear strength of bolts taken from Table 30 of the code, and
As is the Tensile Stress Area of the bolts as specified in respective British Standards.

The bearing capacity is taken as lesser of the bolt bearing capacity Pbb and the connected ply bearing
capacity Pbs. The bolt bearing capacity Pbb is calculated as:
Pbb = d tp pbb
where
d is the nominal bolt diameter,
tp is the thickness of the connected ply.
pbb is bearing strength of the bolt obtained from Table 31 of the code.

When the bolts are countersunk, tp is taken as the ply thickness minus half the depth of countersinking.
The depth of countersinking is taken as half the bolt diameter based on a 90o countersink.

When the Edge Distance e of a bolt hole in the direction of its bearing load is not less than 2d, the
bearing capacity of the connected ply Pbs is calculated as:
Pbs = kbs d tp pbs
where
kbs is a coefficient to allow for hole type and taken as:
- for bolts in standard clearance holes kbs = 1
- for bolts in oversize & short slotted holes kbs = 0.7
- for bolts in long slotted and kidney-shaped holes kbs = 0.5
pbs is the bearing strength of the connected parts obtained from Table 32.

When the end distance e of the bolt hole in a ply is less than 2d, the bearing capacity of the connected
ply Pbs is calculated as:
Pbs = 0.5 kbs e tp pbs
where
e is the end distance of the bolt hole.

The tension capacity Pt of a bolt is calculated as:


Pnom = 0.8 pt At as nominal capacity by Simple Method to Clause 6.3.4.2
Pt = pt At as tension capacity by Exact Method to Clause 6.3.4.3
where
pt is the tension strength obtained from Table 34 of BS5950, and
At is the tensile stress area as specified in respective British Standards.

Combined Tension and Shear Capacity of Non-preloaded Bolts

For any bolt diameter, the Combined Tension and Shear Capacity is calculated by typing a value in the
cell for Applied Tension in its row. When subjected to both Tension and Shear, the combination shear
capacity Fs as per clause 6.3.4.4 is given by:

Fs = (1.4 - Ft/Pnom) Ps <= Ps for bolts designed by using the simple method
where Ft is the applied external tension and Pnom , Ps are as defined above.

Preloaded High Strength Friction Grip Bolts


The slip resistance PsL of a preloaded bolted is given by:
PsL = 1.1 Ks U Po for connections designed as non-slip in service
PsL = 0.9 Ks U Po for connections designed as non-slip under service loads.
where
Po is the minimum shank tension as specified in BS 4604: Part 1 for General Grade and Part 2 for
Higher Grade, and
Ks = 1.0 for clearance holes
= 0.85 for oversize holes and short slotted holes
= 0.85 for long slotted holes loaded perpendicular to the slot.
= 0.7 for long slotted holes loaded parallel to the slot.

U is the Slip Factor in the range 0.1 to 0.6, depending upon the condition of faying surfaces. Table 35
of the code gives them as 0.5 for Class A, 0.4 for Class B, 0.3 for Class C and 0.2 for Class D surface.

HSFG worksheet provides 4 radio buttons to select a Slip Factor value from 0.5, 0.4, 0.3 and 0.2. To
use a different value in the range 0.1 to 0.6, the user can change the 4th radio button cell to any desired
value.
In connections designed as Non-slip in service, capacity after slipping is calculated as per clause 6.4.4.

When the Edge Distance e of a bolt hole in the direction of its bearing load is not less than 3d, the slip
capacity should not exceed the bearing capacity Pbg given by:

Pbg = 1.5 kbs d tp pbg


where
pbg is bearing strength of the connected parts given in Table 32
kbs is the coefficient for the type of hole defined as above. (NB the code implies the use of this factor
by referring to the usage of clause 6.3.3 but omits including it in clause 6.4.4)

When the end distance e of the bolt hole in a ply is less than 3d, the slip capacity should not exceed the
bearing capacity of the connected ply Pbs is given by:
Pbs = 0.5 kbs e tp pbs

The Tension capacity of HSFG Bolts Ptot is calculated as implicit in clause 6.4.5 of BS5950:
Ptot = 1.1 Po for non-slip in service (but Ptot <= At pt)
Ptot = 0.9 Po for non-slip under factored load
where
Po is the minimum shank tension as specified in BS4604, At is the tensile stress area and pt is the design
tension strength of bolts from Table 34 of BS5950-1:2000.

Combined Tension and Shear Capacity of Preloaded Bolts

This Capacity of General Grade Bolts is calculated by typing a Tension load value in the cell for a bolt
diameter in the Applied Tension column.
Higher Grade HSFG Bolts cannot be subjected to External Tension. BS4604: Part 2 restricts their use to
joints subject ONLY TO SHEAR. Combined Tension and Shear analysis for such bolts is therefore not
permitted by this Template.

When subjected to combined Tension and Shear, the shear capacity Fs for General Grade Bolts is given
by:
Fs = (1 - Ftot / 1.1Po) PsL <= PsL for connections non-slip in service
Fs = (1 - Ftot / 0.9Po) PsL <= PsL for connections non-slip under service loads
where
Ftot is the applied external tension and Po, PsL are as defined in the above.

Fillet Welds

The strength of fillet welds is based on their throat thickness. By assuming that connected angle of the
welded plates is 90 degrees, the throat thickness is taken as 0.7 times the weld size or leg length.

Using the Simple Method as per clause 6.8.7.2 , the weld capacity is taken as:
Pw = 0.7 pw leg length /1000 kN/mm

Using the Directional Method as per clause 6.8.7.3 , the weld capacities are taken as:
PL = 0.7 pw leg length /1000 kN/mm as Longitudinal Shear Capacity
PT = K PL kN/mm as Transverse Shear Capacity
where
pw is design strength in N/mm2 from Table 37 of the code for Electrodes Classes 35, 42 and 50
K is the enhancement factor for transverse loads, taken as 1.25 for plates welded at 90o to each other.

To suit design needs, the user can change values of Fillet Weld thicknesses in the left column to any
desired values.

Butt Welds

The strength of full or partial penetration butt welds is taken as 0.6 py in shear and py in tension or
compression, where py is the design strength of the parent metal.

Depending upon the weld thickness, the parent metal strength for steel grades S275, S355 and S460
varies and is obtained from Table 9 of BS5950-1: 2000.

For Grade S275 and metal thickness up to 16, 40, 63, 80, 100 and 150 mm, py is 275, 265, 255, 245,
235 and 225 N/mm2 respectively.
For Grade S355 and metal thickness up to 16, 40, 63, 80, 100 and 150 mm, py is 355, 345, 335, 325,
315, and 295 N/mm2 respectively.
For Grade S460 and metal thickness up to 16, 40, 63. 80 and 100 mm, py is 460, 440, 430, 410 and 400
N/mm2 respectively.

To suit design needs, the user can change values of Butt Weld thicknesses in the left column to any
desired values.
