Hello Friends,


I am trying to do static analysis of C-Clamp Assembly for 300 N load (vertical direction) on Jaw and keeping bottom face of clamp as fixed.

I do not have clear idea about Connections & components sets..analysis fails during meshing of "cap screw2" & screw rod1". Do not know why?


May be i forgot something about contacts or connections or may be due to screw..i don`t know..please help me to find von-misses stress for this assembly.


I can perform analysis of individual components except screw rod1.


material for C Frame is FG260 (= Ductile iron)

Rest of parts of AISI 1020
