Dear friends,

Recently my study is focus on bolt analysis on wheel hub assembly.

In simulation using Abaqus, I try to give a certain value of tightening torque on bolt to determine the clamp force.

But, I do not know how to apply the torque value on FE model.

Can we convert torque to became as an axial force?

Or, convert torque to moment?

Marc/Mentat: Von Mises Stress in cantilever beam


I am performing a very simple cantilever analysis with 5 beam elements in Mentat. I get good results for deflection but Von Mises Stress is very small!! I was thinking that probably I need to connect the elements (rigid body?) or make nodal ties because the Moment Tensor is 0 in all 3 directions, but I don't know how to do it and I can't find an answer in the software documentation.

Can anybody help me?
