Bolt Preload

Hi All,

 

1. In an assembly with bolted connections, which is more conservative with regards to the results? Assembly with bolt pre-load / torque defined OR a without pre-load / torque defined?

 

2. If we do not specify the bolt pre-load / torque, how accurate will be the results?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

 

LS
