How to display the loads carried by a Body-Body joint?

    • AhmedDesoki

      Dear folks

      I want to model a bolted connection. There is a clearance between the hole of upper jointed part and the bolt. Hence, the bolt is expected to carry axial load (tension/compression).

      The Ansys Beam connection is supposed to model bolts, but unfortunately, such beam connection carries shear and torsion in addition to the axial load.

      nInsert a Probe into the results and select the Joint. You will get tabular data on the forces going through the joint and a vector of the total force in the graphics window.n
