### Description

I have calculated the Connecting rod bolt analysis with VDI 2230 standards.I still think I have made so many mistakes.Please help me update this.I will add graphical results later.

General Inputs
Max Inertia force + bearing load on each bolt [N] =
Type of clamping  =
Type of bolted joint  =
Type of tightening method =
Type of bolt  =

n,Bolt size and Validation check
The final load introduction factor given by linear interpolation =
Joint type =
Selected bolt size
Selected bolt strength

Total Minimum clamp load required [N] =

Total axial resilience of bolt is given as (mm/N) =
Total Bending resilience of bolt is given as (mm^-1*N^-1)
Total resilience of the plate in case of concentric clamping(mm/N) =
Bending load factor of bolt in case of pure bending moment (MB)
Extra  load applied on BOLT due to external load application on bolted joint  (N)  =
Extra  load applied on JOINT due to external load application on bolted joint (N) =

The material of clamped part  =
The total amount of embedding for entire bolted joint [in μm] =
Resultant loss in preload due to embedding effects [in N] =
Change in preload due to temperature effect [N]  =

Minimum assembly preload that need to be given to bolted joint =
Maximum assembly preload that is acheived w.r.t tightening in bolted joint  =

Assembly stresses
Utilization factor of yield point stress during tightening =
Allowable maximum stress for selected bolt is[Mpa]=
Permissible assembly preload to be applied for selected bolt is [N] =
Is the bolted joint sufficient for preload to be applied =

Working stresses,Yield point FOS
Comparative stresses in working state[MPa] =
So did the joint preload is sufficient to maintain mimum required clamp load even in exceeded scenario of yield point of bolt =
Safety margin against exceeding Yield point =

Alternating stresses,Fatigue FOS
The bolts are
Endurance limit [Mpa]
Continous alternating stress acting on the bolt [MPa] =
Safety margin against fatigue failure [Sd] =

Surface pressure and FOS
Actual surface pressure (pgmax) [Mpa or N/mm^2] =
Limiting surface pressure that can be given to the clamped parts [Mpa or N/mm^2] =
Safety margin against surface pressure [Sp] =

Minimum length of engagement that should be present between bolt and nut(or internal threaded component) [mm]  =

Residual Clamp load,FOS slipping and shearing
Minimum residual clamp load in the bolted joint [N] =
Safety margin against slipping [Sg] =
Safety margin against shearing of bolt [Sa] =

Tightening Torque
Tightening torque that  can be given to the bolted joint [Nm] =
