    Interference Stress

    Eddy Bennion

      I have a tube, a tube port, and two o rings.  As most anyone will know this assembly is designed to have some interference.  I would like to run a simulation to see what stresses are created in the o ring and in the tube due to this interference, but I have been unsuccessful in doing so.  I cannot get a simulation to run while there is interference between the parts.  If anyone has any suggestions they would be appreciated.
