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:

  1. Use bonded contact to attach the parts (bolts not included)
  2. Use beam elements to model the bolts
  3. Use solid elements to model the bolts but do not model the threads
  4. Include the threads
