Contact Definition Screw Head and Supporting Plate

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

 

I'm trying to model a contact between the head of a screw and the supporting plate on which the bolt will lie. Of course, just one quarted of the model it's used to represent the situation. 

 

As user profile,  I select Optistruct. Since the model is axisymmetric, I want to know first of all if ithere are some specific 2D elements to take into account this aspect or if it enough to put a contraint along the axis.

 

Moreover, since the model is completly flat, I want to understand which is the best way to represent the contact.

 

King Regards,

As mentioned in the above shared tip and trick,with older version you can do only linear analysis.Switching to latest version would help you to explore many new features of OptiStruct.
