I created the attached screw joint to better understand the way SW computes connector forces.
I put an upward 10000N force applied to the upper face of the upper plate.
The lower plate has fixed geometry fixtures applied to 2 vertical faces.
There is a no penetration contact between the 2 plates.
Every bolt has 5000N axial preload.
After the simulation I expected 5000 + 10000/4 = 7500N force in every bolt but I got disappointed.
Can anybody clarify this problem to me?
