Tube wall strength / bolt pull force simulation

By Paul on 17 Jun 11:31 1 answer 289 views 0 comments

Hi All,

I need to simulate a bolt contact with a tube wall to see if the wall thickness of the tube is enough to prevent the bolt pulling through depending on the pull force applied to the bolt as shown in the attached pdf which shows the assembly.

I'm currently doing it with a simple static load but it just hangs.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks !!

    I think I'm just confusing the matter !!!

    Much easier to remove the bolt and apply a force direct to chamfered edge which works a treat.
