For calculation purposes external force (Po) is always positive and rotates boltgroup contrclockwise about it's center (Xc,Yc). Eccentricity (e) is always positive as well. The distance (lo) from boltgroup center to instantenious center (Xo,Yo) can be negative but not less than -e.

ECCENTRICALLY LOADED BOLT GROUP ULTIMATE STRENGTH METHOD This spreadsheet is using the Instantenious Center of Rotation Method to determine shear capacity of bolt group. This method is described in LRFD Code (2nd Edition, Volume II, p. 8-28). In theory, the bolt group rotates around IC, and the displacements of each bolt is proportional to the distance to IC. The load deformation relationship of the bolt: R=Rult(1-exp(-10D)0.55), where Rult = fRn bolt ultimate shear strength. D = total deformation of the bolt (inches), experementally determined Dmax = 0.34 inches. Solving the system of three equilibrium equations we can find location of IC and ultimate shear force of bolt group. Please, be aware of possibly wrong solution when instantenious center is too far from bolt group center.
