      Hi Tim,

      I think by compliance you mean 1/Young's Modulus. Compliance (1/E) is a material input.

      Hello Ashish, sorry I meant resilience. So I need to measure the deformation of the bolt. But I haven't found a solution yet. Do you have an ideo? The bolt adjustment doesn't give the correct solution.
