FEM Modeling Approaches of Bolted Connections
Many methods are available to model bolts. What are the best ways Ansys simulation software can help engineers with bolt simulation, and how might an engineer best approach modeling bolted connections.
Ansys Mechanical Workbench Topics Covered:
In this recorded webinar, SimuTech Group shares our expertise using Ansys Workbench™ in models that:
- Use bonded contact to attach the parts (bolts not included)
- Use beam elements to model the bolts
- Use solid elements to model the bolts but do not model the threads
- Include the threads in modeling
