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!
