    Contact stresses in parallel cylinders

    Rahul Mula


      I got a problem regarding in contact stress between two cylinders(static simulation in solid works). When i run the simulation and looking at the results of contact pressure (see in vector plot), the max stress is not exactly in axial direction. The maximum stress in axial direction is achieved when the mesh size is above 2mm but the results are not matching with the calculations, with fine mesh at contact location can match the calculation but the axial stress is not in center exactly. Any solutions.
