Bolt connectors - help needed

Question asked by James Canney on Feb 11, 2008

I have a study of some bolted cast iron components that I need to analyse, hoping someone can give me some advice.

In the attached picture the flanged bolt has clearance through the top hole (the flange locking it down), this then bolts into the second component which has a tapped hole in it.

Firstly looking for some guidance on how to set this up with bolt connectors in COSMOSworks.

The assembly has symetry, will cosmos analyse the bolt connectors correctly when they have been cut along the symetry line.

Any help here would be much appreciated.
