Screw Joint Connection

This video illustrates a means of providing the kinematic behaviour of a screw joint in an ANSYS Workbench Mechanical structural model.

An APDL Commands Object that converts a joint into an screw joint with the joint’s MPC184 element is used to relate rotation about an axis and translation along that axis. The approach requires solving with a correct choice of Units, and precludes using the Iterative (PCG) solver.
