Thanks once again.

From one side i have frixed my model and the other side i Have inserted a load of 2058 N. 


Should i use any other boundary condition in addition to this. Further more when i solve it with frictional contact it gives me error that deflections are too large.

Further more the max stress is in plate not the rivet.


In addition the shear stress results are not coinciding that of analytical one. Shear stress ansys in XZ plane is 205.5 Mpa and anlytical is 163Mpa using formula
