Bolt Connector Pre-Load solidworks simulation

You can apply an axial load or a combination of torque and a friction factor to simulate the prestress condition of a bolt connector. Enter the values under Pre-load in the Connector Bolt PropertyManager For static studies, bolt connector definitions induce two successive analysis runs: For the first analysis run, …

Connector – Bolt solidworks simulation

A Bolt can connect two components, multiple components, or a component and the ground. You can define bolts through a mixed stack of solids, shells and sheet metal bodies. You can also define a bolt by selecting entities of the same component. Example   Type Standard or Counterbore with Nut …
