In a situation that involves a "ball in socket" type scenario:
["ball" radius - R1]
["socket" radius - R2]
How would one go about determining the maximum thickness of the socket - given that failure occurs due to yielding

assume [S_shear=0.3*p_max] where p_max is the maximum pressure within the contact area
