Bolted connections play an important role in mechanical assemblies, and designing them involves answering several questions, such as: What kind of fasteners are needed? How many do we need for a design, and how tight do we want them during installation? Will the bolted joints fail during operation? Usually, we can answer such questions with the aid of numerical simulations, but setting up such models opens a whole new set of questions. In this learning track titled "Preloaded Bolted Connections", we have packaged courses that walk you through different aspects of designing bolted joints and learn how to leverage finite element analysis. It addresses several questions related to both designing and simulating the preloaded bolted joints and provides wisdom to make modeling decisions for practical problems. Students and professionals with interests in any industry that deals with mechanical assemblies can benefit from this learning track.
