The bearing capacity of the ply should be calculated in accordance with the design Standard, based on the nominal diameter df of the bolt. No reduction for the slot is necessary. Bolts subject to combined shear and tension should be verified in accordance with the design Standard, using the values of Φ'Vf (slot) and Φ'Ntf from the table above. The above design values were prepared by SCI, UK, following a program of tests. Design values verified by HERA, NZ are shown below

M 16 43.5 44.0 30.1 46.0 55.0

These capacities are suitable for design to BS 5950-1 and can be compared directly with factored loads. Bearing resistances for different thicknesses can be calculated by scaling the values given in proportion to the thickness, but should only be used when the end distance is greater than 2d.

Bolts subject to combined tension and shear should satisfy the following expression:

M 16 43.5 52.8 36.1 131.2 150.4

These design resistances are suitable for design to BS EN 1993 and can be compared directly with design loads. The quoted bearing resistances assume k1 = 2.5 and b = 1.0. For different arrangements the bearing resistance should be calculated using the expression in Table 3.4 of BS EN 1993-1-8, with d as the nominal diameter of the blind bolt.

Bolts subject to combined tension and shear should satisfy the following expression:
