Modeling Bolted Joints in an Axle Assembly — Lesson 3

It is necessary to model the bolts to understand their mechanical response under various loading conditions. In this workshop, we model the axle assembly. A tensile load is applied to one end of the axle and analyzed for the forces transmitted between connected parts through the bolts.
