symmetry in bolt pretension
A sample of the bolt-pretension model that I am simulating with Workbench is depicted below:
1. Is there a possibility to apply symmetry if I use only half of the model (resulting from a cut of a plane in yz)?
2. I want to take half of the model cut by a plane in xy direction like in the picture below. Should the symmetry region be like depicted in order to get the same results as the full model?
