    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!
