I am trying to find a reaction force on a parts surface which is bolted to another part.

I am using the bolt connector tool in solidworks. The axial load i am defining in the bolt connector is 120 lbf.


So the expected results for the resulatant force should be close to that no.


The conditions i have set up is a no penetration conatct between the two bolted components.


Please look at the attached snap shot . What i am looking to calculate is the reaction force at the bottom surface of the red part when it is bolted to the otehrt part using a #0-80 bolt .
