Mounting under tension

Figure 1 shows a model of a bracket fixed to the ceiling. In the bores of the holder two bolts are suspended with a load of 100 kg.

The deformations (see fig.2) are strongest at the ends of the bores, wherein (see fig.3) are formed on the upper rounding the highest stresses. These stresses can be reduced by increasing the radius oft he roundings.
