How to determine bushes pivot reaction force ?

Question asked by Arnaud Henry Lefort on Feb 23, 2018

Good morning All,


I hope somebody can help me with my challenging study. I would like to apply the forces on one side (blue arrows) and determine the resulting force at each pivot point (green circles). So far in static and after in motion. Target is to have the reaction forces to determine the bushes loads and the pin size.

I tried but my result are not possible (like more force on ram gland pivot than ram base). Any idea of how I can achieve that?
