  1. Step 1: Perform Geometry Editing

    Simplify geometry for meshing in design modeler

  2. Step 2: Meshing

    Perform Meshing, uses tetrahedron mesh

  3. Step 3: Apply Loading and Boundary condition

    Apply bolt pretension, pressure loads

  4. Step 4: Solution

    Define load steps

  5. Step 5: Results

    Extract results like Stress and displacement
