Discrepancy in connector force results - No penetration vs Virtual wall

Question asked by Eugene Yarygin on Dec 17, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a big discrepancy in connector force results obtained in one case on a “No penetration connection” with a bolt and “Virtual wall” with a foundation bolt in another. Has anyone compared/encountered this issue before or is it just me?

The simulation was done on a very simple model with the purpose to compare the results as “Foundation bolt” results looked dodgy.

I will really appreciate any help with this matter!
