bolt connection simulation in slot

Question asked by Evan De Vlieger on Sep 19, 2016

Hi,

 

I want to simulate a bolted connection with four bolts in 2 slots, in the picture only one of the four is modelled. Is there a function in solidworks simulation which can do this?
I have an assembly with 2 very simple parts clamped together with M6 bolts with around 3 N*m torque and a force on the top of the part in the front (see picture below). Washers are also used in real life, do I need to simulate these as well? And how do I do that?

 

Thank you in advance.
