Let F_{1} and F_{2} resist the 4 kN eccentric load. The primary shear load is due to a direct shear stress of 4kN, which is equally divided amongst the two bolts, i.e. 2 k N,
∴ F_{primary} on P = 2 kN
The secondar y load is t o r esist t he moment produced by the eccentric load 4 kN about the C. G. of the joint
Moment M = 4 kN × 2000 mm
= 8000 Nm
Now this moment must be balanced by a moment pr oduced by equal and opposite forces i .e. secondary loads on the bolts
i .e. F × 400 = 800 Nm
⇒ F = 20 kNCorrect Option: A
