I have a small shock that needs to support few hundred pounds. The designer who came up with it made a major flaw in part design so the pressure on the shock is too shallow instead of weight applying from point to point most of the pressure goes right in the middle of the shock causing it to bend and making it useless. My question is how do i calculate the correct angle for the shock to work properly? Im industrial Designer. I cant post picture now but will post when I can.
