Is there a way to create a smooth transition for e.g. a fixed support?
I use a fixed support for a specified cylindrical surface to mimic a number of thread.
I splited the cylindrical surface in SpaceClaim, since only part threaded area is loaded.
However, it seems that that the fixed support creates a stress concentration that is not realistic.
Any suggestion how to improve the analysis to avoid this problem?
Sure I can neglect that area, but I hope there is another way.
Perhaps I can remove the sharp corner simply add a radius to the corner of the blue surface (fixed support area).

You also have some broken threads, e.g. found here:
I also found a couple of other broken links that you recommended in other threads with interesting topics. I hope they can fix this :)
March 18, 2022 at 8:57 amalbin.linderstamSubscriberthe other thread I was talking about was regarding to analyze the threads themselves.
In the link above, you commented: "Another posthas an example of how to evaluate failure in the threads themselves.", but that link was broken unfortunately.
March 18, 2022 at 9:23 amalbin.linderstamSubscriberI tried to apply Contact Geometry Correction: "Bolt Thread", but I'm not sure how to selecting Starting Point and Ending Point.I can only select Global Coordinate System, and I try to select surfaces/edges in my model, but nothing happens.
Also, regarding the Mean Pitch Diameter, should this be set to 8mm for a M8 like in your example, or to the actual mean diameter found in standards? E.g. 7.188mm (coarse) and 7.513 (fine) for a M8.
The outer diameter of the cylinder ("bolt") and the inner diameter of the "nut" is set to 8mm.
