    Calculating Stresses based upon movement and not force



      I am trying to design a snap fitting in plastic. I am trying to determine whether the design will stay within its elastic limit.


      I know how much the the snap part needs to move to allow the mating part to fit but not how much force is applied to do flex the component.


      How do I do this analysis? Do I need to do a motion analysis first?
