nHow did you calculate these applied forces? Perhaps they are wrong and the real forces are much lower. nOne way to address this is to put more parts in the model so that you can apply known loads to those added parts, and let ANSYS transfer those known loads through the added parts to the part you show above.nThe part you are showing looks like it should only take axial loads. Why would there be such a large moment applied by that remote force in a direction that is the weakest direction for the strut end to support.n
