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.

“The p-type element has been used to great advantage in the finite element system ESRD StressCheck®, . This software provides the engineer with the means to conduct solution verification in an extremely straightforward manner by simply increasing the degree of the element, monitoring convergence and using Richardson extrapolation reliably to estimate the error. This can be conducted automatically by the software thereby enabling the engineer to concentrate on the engineering rather than the simulation. StressCheck® has also been used to develop ESRD’s Handbook and Toolbox applications. The first of these provides engineers with a repository of parameterised standard problems of the type found in texts like Roark’s “Formulas for Stress and Strain”, . The second, Toolbox, is a tool that can be used to parameterise a company’s range of components for rapid and reliable analysis by non-expert analysis. Toolbox then is an exemplary of the way in which the democratisation of simulation can be applied.”
