Bolt Modeling for Crash Analysis

Ensuring an accurate representation of bolts in Finite Element Analysis holds significant importance in obtaining reliable structural simulations. Bolts play a critical role in connecting various components within a structure, transmitting loads, and maintaining stability. An improper representation can lead to inaccurate predictions of the structural behavior.

The goal of this article is to present different modeling strategies for bolts in crash analysis, showing the advantages, limitations, and suggested practices for each approach.
