AA-SM-027-003 Tension ClipsI took our tension clip spreadsheets off line while I derived a theoretical method that matches the leading OEM tension clip analysis strengths. That was an interesting process……… The full derivation will be in the up coming free text book.

The three spreadsheet methods are available here:

AA-SM-027-003 Tension Clips – Formed Aluminum – Abbott Aerospace Method.xlsx

AA-SM-027-004 Tension Clips – Extruded Aluminum – Abbott Aerospace Method.xlsx

Happy Stressing!
