Doubt in applying force..

Hi All,


I am designing a brake disc and disc mounting hub. A hydraulic cylinder is used for applying braking force at certain distance.


I want to know what would be the reaction force at the bolt joint which connects hub and disc. Hence modeled a summy brake pad and coincided with disc. Then applied 1000N force on the pad as shown in attached image. When I plot reaction forces, the values are too low. And I understand I am doing some mistake in applying force.


Anybody please explain, where I did mistake and how to apply force on brake disc to find the reaction forces at bolt joints?
