    how to apply loads to connecting rod at different crank angles

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to do a load anaysis of a single cyinder engine connecting rod. I have calcualated the loads acting at different crank angles on the big end of a single cylinder engine connecting rod. how can I apply these loads on the connecting rod big end at different crank angles to find the Von-Mises stress and the factor of safety.

       

      Thank You
