    Spring Pin Stress Simulation

    William Turk

      I am trying to simulate the stresses in a plastic part that has had a spring pin pressed into it.  I added a "shrink fit" contact set between the pin and the plastic part.  I addded no other loads, but when I ran the simulation, I get a FOS of 0.08 on the pin, even though I'm pressing it into a hole of the correct diameter for the pin.  Anyone have any guesses?
