Solid Edge Simulation Bolt Loads

Is it possbile to query bolt tensile and shear loads from bolts created using the Solid Edge Simulation bolt assembly connector?

Bolt group loads are a can of worms. Best to consult AISC.

 

I can't take any responcibility for accuracy or any persons ability to the the attachment. I have found the attached spreadsheets to be valuble for some basic calculations including bolt groups.

David,

as far as I know you can't plot the Bolt Beam Element Vectors, like in Femap for example.

Altough Femap is the "motor" in SE Simulation.

 

You may log something on this to your VAR.

Thanks, this was also confirmed via GTAC email. They said there was an existing enhancement request to add a feature to display bolt reaction loads.
