    Another Bolt Connection Question for simulation:

    Lou Digilio

      Hello,

       

      What is the best practice for simulating a "bolted" connection where there is a washer under the head of a machine screw?  I am thinking I could model a washer for the simulation but thought there might be a "virtual" washer or method much like the bolt connection. Or maybe I just not model the washer at all and just adjust the friction coefficient to something akin to a washer being present?
