Bond Strength in COSMOS Works

Discussion created by Guest on Sep 19, 2006
These "bonds" are infinitely to speak. Bond strength, to me, refers to a force or stress level where the bond releases, as in an adhesive. The Bonded Contact in CW essentially merges 2 separate meshes into a single mesh so there is no possibilty of separation.

You can query the bond for tranferred load to determine if the fastening method you anticipate using can handle the load however. This gives you some flexibility in sizing your joints.
