At Structural Numerical Research Center, we provide cutting-edge numerical models to assist scientists and researchers from all over the world. With over 14 years of experience, our aim is to continually improve engineering knowledge. A semi-rigid bolted connection is a type of connection between structural elements, often used in steel structures. Unlike a fully rigid connection, where there is no relative movement between the connected elements, a semi-rigid connection allows some limited rotation or deflection between the connected elements. This can be beneficial in design as it allows for a better distribution of loads and stresses between the elements, leading to more efficient and cost-effective structures.
Semi-rigid bolted connections typically involve a bolted end plate, with a series of bolts connecting the plate to one of the elements, such as a beam or column, and then a welded angle or cleat plate connecting the end plate to the other element. The level of flexibility in the connection can be adjusted by varying the number and size of the bolts used and the length of the welds. The design and analysis of semi-rigid bolted connections is a complex task that requires a detailed understanding of the behavior of the individual components and the interaction between them. Numerical modeling, such as the ABAQUS model offered by the Structural Numerical Research Center, can be a valuable tool in this process. Our latest product, the “Analysis of Semi Rigid Bolted Connection” ABAQUS model, is based on a laboratory sample and provides a full FEM analysis of the behavior of semi-rigid connections.
By evaluating this numerical model, you will be able to simulate various types of bolted connections using ABAQUS software and extract the contour of stresses, strains, forces, and displacements. This product is designed to be affordable and suitable for a range of steel structures studies, including the analysis of semi-rigid bolted connections. Additionally, we provide images of the meshed connection geometry and stress contours to give you a comprehensive understanding of the model’s behavior.
Please note that our terms and conditions should be reviewed before purchasing this product. Please also be aware that this product does not come with a tutorial video.
