Hierarchic Approaches to Modeling Fastened Connections Webinar
This webinar will focus on best practices for accurately modeling & analyzing fastened connections and joints, including appropriate simplifying assumptions based on the data of interest.
- Hierarchic modeling of fastened connections, including Planar-only (fastener + link + 2D elements), multi-body contact (load transfer between all parts), plug/partial contact (load transfer between notable parts), & normal springs (compression-only single part analysis) approaches.
- Pros, cons and applicability of each hierarchic approach will be analyzed.
- CASE STUDY: 3D Lug Comparison – Multi-body contact, plug/partial contact & normal springs.
- LIVE DEMO: You will learn the process of checking reactions in contact regions/holes, as well as how to perform live-dynamic processing of detailed stresses in multi-part assemblies.
