    clamp force divide by surface ?

    Joshua Mayer

      hi, newbies here!


      try to run simulation with clamp force by bolt/screw..

      check some catalogue, they provided the clamp load value


      just wonder should that value be divide 2 since bolt is clamp against 2 surface ?


      here is what i am try to do:


      i want to simulate respond of one body under another body when they clamp together with bolt/screw


      and now wondering what value should i use,

      pls dun tell me gravitational force, i hv include it, thanks!
