Homework, Quizzes and Workshop — Best Practices and Results Validation

Workshop

In the final section of this course, we have learned how preloaded bolts can change the stiffness of a system and influence the nonlinear and dynamic nature of the system. We will put this knowledge to practice in this new workshop. We will set up a nonlinear static analysis followed by a modal analysis using the linear perturbation technique in Ansys Mechanical.

Homework

In this homework, we solve the problem at hand and use different tools to extract various simulation results such as the stresses, deformation, contact pressure, etc. In industry, these results are used to make crucial engineering decisions to ensure safe and efficient operation of the assembly. Your job is to extract simulation results for the given model and answer the questions in the homework-based quiz.
