Which seetings a have to applie for a simulation with bolt preload and multiple subcases?
I have in subcase 1 only the bolt preload, in subcase 2, 3, 4, .... the bolt preload and different forces.
- Calculate subacse 1 (bolt preload)
- Calcualte subcase 2 forces
- Calcualte bolt preload
- Calcualte subcase 3 forces
- Calcualte subcase 4 forces
Thanks and best Regards
Is the SID of the bolt preload the same in all 3 subcases? If it is, the preload should not be recomputed in subcases 2 & 3.
Alternatively, if you put the preload in the global case, it should only be calculated once.
