Reviewing Bolt Forces and Results Verification — Lesson 2

Efficient and safe design of bolted assemblies requires quantification of stresses and deformation in the bolt and the mating components. In addition, when the primary objective of the bolts is to ensure sufficient sealing and prevent leakage, other simulation results such as contact pressure, contact status, etc., might also be important. In this lesson, we will learn about the different tools available in Ansys Mechanical for post-processing the solved model and for extracting useful results.
