Stress induced and deformation due to line contact between two different materials

Stress induced and deformation due to line contact between two different materials

Stress induced and deformation due to line contact between two different materials

(OP)
Hello,
I have a shaft and hollow cylinder, both have conical regions with different angles. The conical surface of the shaft will come in contact with edge of the hollow cylinder conical feature as shown in attachment. Shaft is Stainless steel and cylinder is Aluminium. The type of contact is line contact since the conical surface of the shaft rests on a edge. Axial load is acting on the shaft axis downwards. I need to find the stress and deformation developed in the aluminium part. Since It is a line contact, I cannot calculate the area to find the stress induced. Also, I cannot determine the direction of deformation and it's value. Kindly help me on this problem.

Thanks in advance!
