Application of finite element method in the optimal design of the nut with a groove in the end-face

Filip Lisowski

Abstrakt

The paper presents an application of finite element method in the optimal design of the nut with a groove in the end-face. There were described issues of the load distribution and FEM modeling of threaded connections. The optimization problem was formulated with the aim of obtaining the uniform load distribution on the bolt’s thread depending on the geometry of nut.

Słowa kluczowe: nut with a groove in the end-face, parametric optimization, finite element method
