I have to do a FEA axial failure test of an assembly of two small pipes screwed one to another and compare the results with the ones from an actual testing performed by our company.
Has anyone done something like this before? It would be great if you could share your experience.
I still haven't found a solution.
I'm exploring the possibilities to do the test using ANSYS. I found out that this is possible using the Explicit Dynamics module in ANSYS. The other thing that I found out is that there is a Multi-body Dynamics Add-on and since my assembly is from two bodies (pipes) I'm wondering do I have to use this MBD add-on?
I would appreciate any help on this topic.
