SHRINK FIT

NOMENCLATURE
DETERMINING CONTACT
PRESSURE, P
In many cases, the designer may choose a maximum
tangential stress

. Then, p may be solved for (as p


i
for the
hub) using
Watch your as, bs,

DETERMINING CONTACT
PRESSURE, P

Otherwise, the designer may choose to specify an
interference , or the contact pressure p itself and then solve
for the necessary to achieve that p.
CONTACT PRESSURE
If the hub & shaft are of the same
material, this condenses to:
SHRINK FITS
Once p is determined, assume a friction factor f : usually
0.15 < f < .20. The assembly force F to assemble a shrink-fit
assembly is given by Eq.:
F = 2bpfL, where L is the length of the fit.
Holding Torque T is given by:
T = Fb = 2 b

Assumptions: max. tangential stress NTX 30 MPa, contact
pressure is uniform, and f = 0.15. FIND: radial interference
, assembly force, & torque capacity.
FLYWHEELS
A flywheel is a typically a disc
which rotates on a shaft. They are
used to smooth out small oscillations
and to store energy (kinetic energy of
rotation). Examples: cars, hybrids,
punch press

Design and analysis is similar. An
added component is consideration of
the radial forces developed by the
rotation a term of
