How to use a bolt's full potential
The bolt is usually not used to its full potential. For example, the majority of bolt joints are tightened only to 55 percent of the maximum available clamping force, since statistically it has been calculated that this is where you run the least risk of loosening or fractures. This means that today, you use two bolts, where you only should be needing one.
