I want to analyse fastening of a bottom hinge and I determine the reaction forces in its holes. They are needed to determine the diameters of the screws.
I created two analyses with different constraints:
Fixed edges of the holes
Fixed nodes in the centers of the holes
Unfortunately, I received different values for reactions and I don’t know which from them to use.
|Rx, N||Ry, N||Rz, N|
|fix. edges||fix. nodes||fix. edges||fix. nodes||fix. edges||fix. nodes|
Can anybody please help me?
