'Washer' simulation project by ITeed


I created a new simulation project called 'Washer':

Washer to Oversize hole

More of my public projects can be found here.


Interesting simulation @ITeed!

Are you doing the FE analysis for a specific project? Also have some thoughts about your Boundary Conditions:

  1. Have you considered changing the surface where the load acts on to the top surface of the nut

  2. Usually you have normal forces as well as tangential forces acting in between the elements contact , have you thought about modelling those or are they negligible for your case?

  3. You could model one quarter of your model as your problem is symmetric

Let me know what you think!
