    I have a tube that is being forced against a fixed top face (see attached for details) and I am trying to calculate the perpendicular deflection when the force is applied.

    I do not have a clue where to start, any pointers would be very helpful.

    You have a column. You want to use a column buckling equation.

    Are you familiar with Roark's Formulas For Stress and Strain?
