Bolt Series Results

Question asked by Matthew Tucker on Jan 27, 2011

When I run an analysis without using a bolt series, I can get the resultant loads on the bolt. When I run a simulation with a bolt series connecting three components, I cannot get the resultant forces on the bolt. I get an error that says "Pin/Bolt/Bearing forces are not available due to non-existent connectors or changes in the connector faces." The only difference between the two models is whether or not I have the box checked for advanced series. How do I get the shear values and tension values on the bolt when using the series bolt feature?
