Modeling thermal path through screw

Hi guys


I am trying to figure out how to model the heat path through a screw head and into the bodies that the screw is joining together, mainly being a conduction heat transfer problem.  My problem is that when I use the toolbox 100 deg screw, simulation obviously says there is interference between the screw and the body it goes into.  I tried modeling the screw with it turned down to the minor diameter to fit the hole diameter but I don't know if that is the best way to go about it.  Any suggestions?
