bushing boundary conditions - Revisited: High stresses

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I would like your opinion for a quassi static analysis I am performing that includes 3d contact between a rectangular plate with a bolt hole fitted, a bushing that will be inserted with an interference fit into the plate's bolt hole and an external load.


I am thinking to perform the analysis in two steps: First, calculate the stresses from the interference fit of the bushing (no external load). Second (continued from the first step) apply the external load (can be a force, or a pressure load). The question is: what kind of boundary condition will be applied on the bushing during the second step to "lock" it in place to ensure that the bushing will not move in the vertical plane or exhibit a rotation of some kind? Do we need to apply any BC to the bushing?

 

Thank you for advance for your assistance.
