Non-linear stress analysis of a push fit to verify why real-world failures were occurring during manufacturing. Multiple analyses were performed with different material models to replicate the failures seen. The interference of the push fit was found to be too large, and the stress state after manufacturing was determined to help show why failures were occurring. The project was completed within a week from first contact, to ensure manufacturing in China could continue.
