Practical application of the bolt calculation

MDESIGN bolt Workshop


  • Application of MDESIGN bolt
  • Interpretation of results on the basis of different forms of presentation
  • Creation of proofs and documentation

On the subject

Bolted joints are among the most important fasteners due to their ease of assembly and release. With increasing frequency, users are confronted with the situation of providing valid proof. With the guideline VDI 2230, the VDI provides an internationally recognized guideline.


Goal setting

The workshop will give the participant an insight into the modeling of single-bolt connections with MDESIGN bolt and provide confidence in the calculation and verification. On the basis of practical case studies the selection and input process in the calculation method VDI 2230 will be explained.
