I am new to ansys. Have a question regarding the bolts and centrifugal forces acting on them.

So I am designing a crusher with its internal structure shown in the picture I attached. The hammer type thing on the ends are bolt jointed with the main structure. The body rotates with 3000 RPM. Is there any way in ansys with which we can simulate or somehow come to a point that the M10x35 bolts will handle the forces acting on them, ı mean is it ok to use M10x35 bolt. The material used is stainless steel. The image attached explains the structure much better.

In Static Structural, you can apply a rotational velocity inertial load of 3000 RPM and the solution will calculate the stress in the parts to keep that hammer head on the end of the arm at that speed.

Dear Peter,

I am really thankful that you replied. You are always helpful, but I am sorry to say that i didnt get it. Can you please explain it a bit. I will be really really thankful to you

Here is a rotational velocity applied to all the mass in the model. The axis is defined by the  center hole, which is also a fixed support.

Here is the Deformation.
