Example T61 is a solid mechanics application of a bicycle quickrelease mechanism component, and Example T62 is a heat transfer application for a sandwich plate used in building construction. The tutorial features: A. Stress and thermal analyses: (a) Modifying element stresses to account for stress concentration factors at the root of threads (b) Specifying a convection boundary condition using /CAE's Keywords Editor B. Application of two versions of the basic twonode finite element: (a) Truss element T2D2 (b) Heat transfer element DC1D C. Load application via specification of a nonzero essential boundary condition: (a) Nodal displacement load (b) Nodal temperature load D. Running input file data checks before submitting full analysis runs. ONEDIMENSIONAL FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS T62 Example T61 Stress Analysis of Bike QuickRelease Skewer The compound, cylindrical, steel rod shown ( E = 200GPa ) is known as a skewer, and it is used in a bike's front wheel quickrelease mechanism. It has a cam head section on the left end and a machine thread section on the right end. When the quickrelease lever is closed, the left end is displaced the throw distance of the cam, . 025 mm to the left, while the right end is anchored against the bike's fork by an adjustment nut. This places the skewer in tension, clamping the wheel hub and fork together. Skewer dimensions are given in the following table. In particular, d he is an equivalent diameter for the cam head end, and d t is the thread root diameter for which the stress concentration factor K t = 3 . applies. 1 The maximum stress in the skewer is to be determined, accounting for stress concentrations. Application of a displacement load at a boundary ( D 1 =  . 025 mm ) is featured in this example, as shown below on the FE model.

Peterson, Stress Concentration Design Factors, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., New York, 1953. Most bolt failures occur at the thread and nut interface. The stress concentration factor for standard bolt/nut proportions is as high as 3.85, but when the nut is recessed this factor is reduced to 3.0.
