Bolts in Nonlinear and Dynamic Analyses — Lesson 1

Until now, we have discussed the behavior of bolted joints under static loads. However, bolt preload may also affect the dynamic behavior of an assembly. In this lesson, we look at the performance of bolted assemblies under nonlinear and dynamic conditions and discuss a few points to remember to ensure result accuracy in such simulations.
