Lug Analysis Validation
In Section 9.6 of the Air Force Stress Analysis Manual, an example is provided for an axially loaded lug. The male lug strength, female lug strength, and double shear joint strength are calculated. This validation case follows the Air Force example to ensure consistent results between the Air Force Manual and MechaniCalc's Lug Analysis calculator.
