**Double Shear Force Calculator**

Enter the values of average shear stress, t_{ave(N/m2)} and area of stress, A_{(m2)} to determine the value of double shear force, DSF_{(N)}.

**Double Shear Force Formula**

Double shear force, often encountered in engineering and mechanical contexts, refers to the scenario where a force is applied in such a way that it causes shearing action at two distinct points or planes along the member being analyzed.

Double shear force, DSF_{(N)} in Newtons is equated by the product of 2, average shear stress, t_{ave(N/m2)} in Newton per square metre and area of stress, A_{(m2)} in metre square.

Double shear force, DSF_{(N)} = t_{ave(N/m2)} * 2 * A_{(m2)}

DSF_{(N)} = double shear force in Newtons, N.

t_{ave(N/m2)} = average shear stress in Newton metre square, N/m^{2}.

A_{(m2)} = area of stress in metre square, m^{2}.

__Double Shear Force Calculator:__

- Calculate the double shear force required to shear a bolt with an average shear stress of 40,000N/m
^{2}and a cross-sectional area of 0.15m^{2}.

Given: t_{ave(N/m2)} = 40,000N/m^{2}, A_{(m2)} = 0.15m^{2}.

Double shear force, DSF_{(N)} = t_{ave(N/m2)} * 2 * A_{(m2)}

DSF_{(N)} = 40000 * 2 * 0.15

DSF_{(N)} = 12000N.

- Assuming a double shear force of 20,000N. is required to shear through a pin, and the cross-sectional area of the pin is 0.25m
^{2}, calculate the average shear stress.

Given: DSF_{(N)} = 20000N, A_{(m2)} = 0.25m^{2}.

Double shear force, DSF_{(N)} = t_{ave(N/m2)} * 2 * A_{(m2)}

t_{ave(N/m2)} = DSF_{(N)} / 2 * A_{(m2)}

t_{ave(N/m2)} = 20000 / 2 * 0.25

t_{ave(N/m2)} = 40,000N/m^{2}.
