Force that makes a part yield when there's contact

suppose I have two parts in a static study and there's contact. I need to find out the force that will make one part yield.

In linear static studies you can run a study, get the Von Mises Stress results, and then figure out required force to yield the part by making a simple proportion.


Contact is a non-linearity so can you still use the same approach when there's contact or do you have to foind it out by trial and error ?
