FEA of a Threaded Connection using Abaqus


Modeling a fluoropolymer seal that is part of a threaded connection can be a challenging problem due to the complex geometry and the viscoplastic properties of the polymer seal.

Here is a presentation that I created that illustrates one way to perform this type of FE model.
