SOLIDWORKS Pin Connector

Distributed Coupling for Bolts and Pins in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020

The rigid connection type (top) produces artificial stress concentrations in the bolt head region. The distributed option (bottom) produces a more realistic stress field.

Getting simulation results quickly, while maintaining accuracy, is always a top priority for any analyst. Replacing modeled fasteners with bolt or pin connectors in SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a great way to simplify your model, thus significantly reducing your solution time, without compromising on accuracy. The…
