Measure shear stress on a bolt using strain gauge rossette

Recommended Posts

I want to know how to find the average shear stress in a bolted flange connection. I have to develop a method to find average shear stress on the bolt with the condition that we dont know the direction of the shearing force. I saw a document where they used rectangular strain gauge rosette to find maximum shear strain and thus the maximum shear stress. Can you help mw if there is any other method to find shear in a bolt using gauge?
