ANSYS Workbench - Modeling Bolted Connections
This one-hour technical webinar recording discusses several common methods for modeling bolted connections in ANSYS Mechanical Workbench.
These methods can be grouped into 4 categories:
- 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
