SW 2012 Pin Connector Loads in Harmonic Study

Question asked by Craig Turner on Oct 4, 2011

I was excited to learn that 2012 simulation had added pins as a connector so I upgraded today but when I try to get any pin results I get this:

Any suggestions/comments would be helpful. I need to determine the Safety Margin of the bolted connections for stress and clamping loads. It works fine in a static study, giving me shear, axial, bending etc. but I need to do a sine analysis which in 2011 didn't even offer pins as a connector type.

 

Also, the Pin results option isn't available in the right-click on the results tree (as in static), only in the main simulation drop down menu which is a little bit of a pain.
