Mechanically Fastened Joints and Bolt Preload - ANSYS e-Learning

Many structural analysis requirements address assemblies with mechanically fastened joints.  Finite element simulation provides insight into load transfer and detailed part stresses of assemblies.  During this ANSYS e-Learning session, CAE Associates Project Manager George Bauer discusses:

  • Different bolted connection approaches for various levels of detail or analysis focus.
  • Global and detail level shell and beam modeling.
  • Detailed solid part connections and problem setup.
  • Applying bolt pretension load and monitoring.
  • Bolt and Part contact & interaction options and setup.
  • Rigid body motion and general nonlinear problem setup.
  • Postprocessing important results quantities. Integration with design studies and optimization.
