Non concentric torque analysis

Question asked by Aaron Hallett on Dec 2, 2014

Hi,

 

I have a simulation head scratcher...

One sheet metal part has a PEM captive stand-off pressed into it.

A screw 30mm in length is screwed into it,

 

This i can simulate and garner stress results using a standard force applied on end the face of the stand-off

 

I am seeing customers misalign the product so the screw is not concentric with the stand-off on assembly.

What is the best way to apply a force or torque to replicate this?

With the axis of the stand-off and screw misaligned by say 1mm in one direction only

 

Thanks in advance
