Simulate Forces Due to Screws

Latest reply on Mar 8, 2013 by Torie Hadel



I am an electrical (not mechanical! hence the need for solidworks help) engineer and I am designing some enclosures that will house microstrip components. Basically, there are two halves that come together and they are held together by screws. I am trying to analyze how these screws might warp or deform the two halves when they are screwed together. I looked into simulationxpress and I don't think it is the right application. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Unfrotunatly, due to security reasons I cannot post the solidworks file itself so please let me know if I can clarify my drawing in any way.

Thanks in advance!!
