Clevis and lug design - Peterson's

I think the current formula only work if c = H/2.
Or am I wrong?
There a good aerospace industry method to be found in Aerospace_lug_analysis.xls.
An offshore industry method is presented in API PADEYE Design.
I hope this helps.
I have to design a clevis and lug that carry both axial and transverse load. Can you guide me to where to find design example? Your clevis and lug design only carries axial load.

No the calculation is correct as the pin is assumed to be simply supported and the load is uniformly distributed (PL/4 would be true if all the load was concentrated at the centre of the pin). Thanks.
