Hi, I am looking to write a script to place pre-meshed bolts at the bolt holes of an existing bolted flange mesh, an example of which would be below: The bolt hole pattern will not always be a perfect crown, and therefore requires a more general approach Are there any pre-existing tools in Hypermesh that I can use in a tcl script to automate this process? I know hypermesh can find and fill holes, im just wondering if it can find the hole, and tell me the centroid. Or are there any other clever ways for finding the hole centroids based on logically downselecting through tcl scripts? Ultimately the crux is being able to find the centroid of the holes, I can manage the rest of the scripting. If anyone has any ideas that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Tyler
Hi, I'm modeling two fastened components in Hypermesh and I'm looking for a way to simulate pretensioned bolts. I've seen there are bolts elements in Hypermesh but i can't understand how to apply a preload. Appreciate your help and suggestions. Thank you in advance.
I'm working on a project on stress analysis of a typical truck chassis frame. I need to mesh the chassis which contains 400 components, mostly nuts, bolts & washers. Can I eliminate all the nuts, bolts & washers for simplified meshing? Will it have an effect on the result? Kindly help as I'm finding it difficult to mesh 400 components. Thank you (:
