Effect of load exceeding pretension bolt strength?

Effect of load exceeding pretension bolt strength?

Two cases I'd like to clarify conceptually:

If a stress is applied to a pretensioned bolt that exceeds the pretension load, what exactly happens to the bolt? It is my understanding that the bolt becomes effectively 'loose' and its clamp force is essentially zero.

In order to cause material failure of the bolt, must the stress applied exceed the combined load of the bolt's pretension and yield strength or just the latter only?

EDIT: If the stress acts in the longitudinal direction of the bolt (pushing it up and out of the bolt hole).

As a complete beginner, is it possible to self-learn?

As a complete beginner, is it possible to self-learn?

I'm completely unaware of almost everything to do with engineering. I did basically the least related subjects in university. That being said, lately I've become interested in creating stuff I'd like to use that doesn't exist (or in some cases is way too expensive). I'm trying to look into learning some stuff on my own during free time, including looking through old syllabi of my alma mater, but I'm having a hard time finding material and learning order. Are there recommended online videos/courses/books? Learning order?

I apologize if this isn't the correct subreddit as well, let me know and I can post this in the correct one.

Excel is my companys project and document management tool, and it’s driving me mad

Excel is my companys project and document management tool, and it’s driving me mad

Hey, fellas

I've had my first job as an electronics engineer at a small engineering company for a year now, and I want to share some of my frustration..

I work at a company where we get two new products to design or redesign a week, hardware, electronics or both. All our deliverables and documents are stored in a jungle of folders and referenced by a big excel sheet for each customer where we manually type in a new item for every new file we create.

Then each "work package", be it a new design or redesign of a product will generate a new excel document where all information is stored about that specific work package. A new revision of an existing product? Now you got two excel sheets containing information about that very product. Another revision? Three excel sheets on what's been done, delivered and tested for the same product. Want to see what documents are tied to a product? Spend at half the bloody day scrolling through excel sheets, look through relevant folders and ask colleagues if they know anything.

Not to mention that our version control system is copying the work folder and renaming it. And having the old version as two identical folders on two different servers ("work" and "release"), and all specifications and documents for a product has to be written manually in Word, with us searching through the myriad of excel sheets and folders to find the right parameters to jot down.

I spend half my day wading through excel sheets and doing things manually that a piece of software should solve in a split second… It's a bloody waste of time, but my colleagues think it's working out fine, and resist any suggestion to change it..

Tell, me how does your company organise itself? Is there any tools out there for small companies with a ton of projects and products to keep track on, that could also automate much of the documentation? If not, seems like I need to start coding something…

How did you decide what you where/what you wanted to do?

How did you decide what you where/what you wanted to do?

I'm 26 and graduate in December with a mechanical engineering degree with a very strong resume for a student, though all of my experience has been in plants with little to no actual design work. I'd like to think I have a lot of options, but looking at job postings I'm seemingly paralyzed. "I don't want to live there" or "I don't want to do that" or "That doesn't seem to have good career projection" keep me from going any further with them.

Siemens NX will be Leading Full Software?

Siemens NX will be Leading Full Software?

So I just graduated (B.S.M.E.) and am looking for a package to get more familiar with.

It seems like NX has great CAM capabilities, Nastran for FEA, and just acquired STAR CCM+ for CFD. Is this my best bet if looking into the future for a full software for serious analysis considering its possible growth since acquiring CMM+?

Discuss please.
