    DESCRIPTION

    The Bolt Toolkit app simplifies and speeds up the creation and post processing of bolts. Features includes:

    • Pretension on groups of existing bolts (CAD bolts). • Creation of groups of simplified bolts (NVH-bolts)

    with pretension • Creation of groups of advanced bolts (brick mesh)

    with contacts, thread interaction and pretension • Post processing of the bolt types including

    Eurocode 3 and VDI 2230

    Weld Strength

    DESCRIPTION

    Post processing tool to evaluate weld strength according to Eurocode 3 for fillet and butt welds. All types of FE- models can be used; shell/solid, contact/multi-body, with or without weld geometry

    The Weld Strength app can create weld stresses and forces for one or all load steps (maximum over time)

    The app can calculate minimum required weld section thickness based on one or all load steps.

    ASME Local Strain Assessment FREE

    DESCRIPTION

    Perform local strain assessments according to ASME Section VIII division 2 part-5 for pressure vessels by calculating the local strain limit and a usage factor

    The calculation will display the Local Strain Limit results as a contour plot and also give the parameter values

    The ACT does not calculate results for shell This limitation was put there on purpose as the ASME local strain assessments meant to be used on a well refined solid mesh in order to capture the true 3D behavior of the model

    Stress Envelop

    DESCRIPTION

    This App allows user to create an Envelope of Max/Min Stresses over all the time steps (substeps).

    User is allowed an option to select any of the six stress components along with Equivalent and Principal Stresses

    This app would help user to identify the Max tensile and compressive stresses in a multi step Static/Transient analysis plot.

    Fatigue Scanning

    DESCRIPTION

    Post processing tool to evaluate maximum stress or strain range from a selected range of solution steps. Results are saved in a csv file for external fatigue analysis and plotting using “CSV Plot”

    With the Fatigue Scanning app you select the geometry of interest (typically a number of faces of a body) and let the app run all possible load case combinations from the selected steps.

    The result is the highest stress or strain range from the selected range in the time history

    Fatigue Crossland

    DESCRIPTION

    Fatigue post-processing tool based on the Crossland criterion for Static and Transient simulations

    The computation of the Crossland criterion is based on two stress fields:

    • The stress fields have to come from the same model (same mesh)

    • The stress fields can come from steps of different analyses, or from two different steps of the same analysis

    • The second stress field can be null
