Bearing Stress Simulation
I'm trying to perform bearing stress simulation to compare against the results of an actual experiment.
In the experiment, the (aluminum) material began to yield at about 6000N of force. The bearing stress ( = force / bearing area ) was calculated to be 297Mpa ( 6000N / 0.0002016 m^2 ). However, the simulation produced some different numbers.
My question is: How do you find bearing stress in ANSYS Mechanical?
Below are some screenshots of my simulation so far. Please help.
