Extracting Bolt (Beam) forces for Bolt Calculations

Recommended Posts

I've created an solved a small assembly with bolted connections, with its contacting face "separated" for the bolt calculation.


Question:  How can I extract  bolt forces (Axial, Y-shear, Z-shear) for entry into the spreadsheet.


Comment:  When using the Property feature to create Beam properties, the Calculate function computes the four entries with minus (-) sign, which had to be manually edited to (+) sign for Optistruct to solve.   I had simply entered the value for R2, but not R1.   (SimLab 2017)
