    Can multiple lugs land on the same side of a terminal?

    This question is very closely related to a now closed thread titled: Can multiple single lugs on a secondary side of a transformer, be bolted together? At the bottom of the thread a member posted a surface area question that was not answered.

    The application here is a parallel set of 350s with single barrel lugs that land on the same side of a terminal; The lug that is in contact with the terminal would receive twice the ampacity it was rated for because of the 2nd lug that is on top of it.

    Is this a code violation? I'm having difficulty understanding whether the bottom lug would be able to carry the extra current. Thank you for the help.
