    Bonded Contact

    Eyup Firat Aydin

      Hello All;


      After a while I dig into FEA simulations. However, I am not quite familiar with Solidworks.
      I downloaded some simulation case studies. However, I guess there is something was wrong with the case studies.

      I compare the result of two studies.


      001 - Results on the top ( The default contact conditions - global bonded contact, bolted connection and no penetration contact)

      002 - Results on the bottom. ( I just thought - that is not a welded part - so I suppressed the bonded contact)


      Which of the analysis should be correct?
