I have 2 components held together by 0.5" pins. i.e pin has interference fit on componant and sliding fit on the other. Please suggest the contacts to be used between the pin and the componants.


Presently i'm modelling the pin and holes in the component as per required fit dimensions and using no penetration contacts between the pin and componants in the assembly for both interference fit and sliding fit.


Another approach followed is I make the pin and hole the same size (for both sliding fit and interference fit) give bonded contacts between the pin and components.


I have modeled the pin and used it for FEA as i require the stresses and displacement plot for the pins also.


Kindly advise as i'm using these pins to restrict displacement of the component under the action of load.
