FREE Double Shear Pin Calculator

Double Shear Pins are the most common pins used. This simple calculator allows you to get the stresses on the pin and bearings quickly with out headaches.

Unlike other online calculators, this free calculator allows for gaps and calculates the bending moments on the pin.

1. The bearing area for t2 takes into account the offset loading, c. If the load is offset, the bearing area is reduced to give the stress of a symmetric loading
