    Bolt Simulation

    Nilanga Gamage



      I have defined 4 Counterbore screws as shown below.


      Each bolts have following definitions

      Head Diameter: 8.179

      Nominal Shrank Diamter 4.165

      Meterial AISI 316 SS

      Threads/inch 32

      Bolt Strenght 25000 psi

      Torque 6 N-m

      Friction Factor 0.2


      The load is a remote load of 375 lbf. When I run the analysis, it shows about 0.03 FOS of the bolts and it should be wrong. No components fail. Can anyone tell what's wrong here?
