I am doing my master thesis, that is a steel bolted connection analysis. I am learning a lot here in the community, thank you.
Now, I have a problem with the bolt stress results.
I think that the problem with the bolt, is something in the geometry. Because when I try to apply a boolean with, Head, fastener and wash of the bolt, it does not occure. Maybe something wrong that I am doing extrude a surface, cutting the material. I think this, becasue when I take the direcional deformation in the bolt axis, I see the picture below:
So, there is something wrong with my bolt geometry.
The model is attached.
Thank you one more time!!!

It is true scale, now the geometry is correct, but i snot converging...

I don't understand why when I apply boolean in the parts of the bolt, it does not merge the solids. Could you help me with boolean?

You had three bodies in one multibody part and Shared Topology connected the mesh. Why do you need to Boolean these bodies together?
These are well connected meshes.
There is no problem performing a Boolean on those bodies if that is the last operation. However when you have a Share Topo item in the outline, you can't do a Boolean. In fact, Share Topo is not required to Share Topology. It is an obsolete function.

Thank you Peter. How did you get the picture that is in the right?With this picture you can see that the elements are not regular, because this, I think that the peak of stress is appearing.
What do you think about?

The reason is Average Across Bodies is set to No by default.
