Tips & Tricks

Here you will find articles on how to solve specific issues related to ESI's software solutions. Missing ESI products will be added progressively. Each article has a short abstract which is accessible to everyone. As logged users you can see the full article with all attached screenshots, and you can post comments related to each article.

Modelling pretension of Bolts
To simulate bolt pretension, a new medium called PRELOAD has been developed. With this medium, the strain generating the pretension is automatically computed and applied on the model.
