Unfortunately, I have been unable to find that info again. My immediate situation is that I'd like to shrink fit a 2" cube onto a. Any help will be appreciated. Shrink fits require knowing the coefficients of expansion for the materials the parts are made out of. Afer you have that, it then becomes a question of what tensile stress will be developed in the part with the bored fit and what crushing stress will be developed in the part fitting into the bore.
The calucaltions are simple enojugh and a surprisingly small temperature difference heating up of trhe bore or chilling down of the part to be inserted will produce some very tight fits when temperatures normalize.Joint pressure in the friction surface is necessary for the torque force transmission and this pressure is generated by the deformation of shaft and hub.
In the press fit case, assembly operation is done with large amount of forces and forcing shaft into the hub. In the shrink fit case, assembly operation is done by relative size change of parts with the help of heat treatment. Typical examples of press fit are fitting shafts into the bearing and bearings into the housings.
Note: For more information on interference fits, please refer to pages - of the Precision Machine Design. Green color means safe, red color means not safe according to input parameters. The design factor is what the item is required to withstand. The design factor is defined for an application generally provided in advance and often set by regulatory code or policy and is not an actual calculation.
The difference between the factor of safety safety factor and design factor is: The factor of safety gives the safety margin of designed part against failure.
The design factor gives the requirement value for the design. Safety factor shall be greater than or equal to design factor. Press fit: Assembly of parts with very large amounts of force. Assembly operation is done with presses. Shear stress: A form of a stress acts parallel to the surface cross section which has a cutting nature. Shrink fit: Assembly of parts by relative size change with the help of heat treatment.
This is usually achieved by heating and cooling one component before assembly and allowing it to return to the ambient temperature after assembly. Stress: Average force per unit area which results strain of material. Stress Concentration Factor: Dimensional changes and discontinuities of a member in a loaded structure causes variations of stress and high stresses concentrate near these dimensional changes.
This situation of high stresses near dimensional changes and discontinuities of a member holes, sharp corners, cracks etc. The ratio of peak stress near stress riser to average stress over the member is called stress concentration factor. Von Mises: A theory used to estimate the yielding of ductile materials. The Von Mises criteria states that failure occurs when the energy of distortion reaches the same energy for yield failure in uniaxial tension test.
Yield strength: The stress at which a material exhibits a specified permanent deformation or set. Example: AlT6: Mpa. Please WaitLog In. Brian www.

I am currently working on analyzing the capability of using shrink fit Most likely with induction shrink fitting to heat up a steel hub steel so that it can slide onto a shaft. Using the tolerances from the tables obtained in the machinery handbook for a FN5 fit I have an estimated desired deformation of 0.
Ideally I would like to have the hub at around 1. Using the formula shown below I should be able to calculate how much I need to heat up the hub, but I was wondering for nominal length L should I use the inner or outer diameter?
Also if I were to use either option it would reach over F. Isn't that value above the critical value before the material properties would change? Or is it C and up that I need to worry about?

I have not run your numbers, but I have used solid CO2 for that small a diameter with an interference fit of 0. For thousandths interference fit, I have used liquid N2 successfully to cool the small diameter part.
Again, much smaller temp difference than heating the larger diameter part that much. The L dimension should be based on the position of the interface. How big is the hub? For the bore thermal expansion to be outward the entire hub must be up to a uniform temperature. I guess I will asked the dumb question.Torque Engineering and Design Strength of Materials. An interference fit, also known as a press fit or friction fit, is a fastening between two parts which is achieved by friction after the parts are pushed together, rather than by any other means of fastening.
For metal parts in particular, the friction that holds the parts together is often greatly increased by compression of one part against the other, which relies on the tensile and compressive strengths of the materials the parts are made from. Typical examples of interference fits are the press fitting of shafts into bearings or bearings into their housings and the attachment of watertight connectors to cables.
An interference fit also results when pipe fittings are assembled and tightened. Use this engineering calculator to determine engineering and design parameters for cylindrical press fit applications. Membership Register Login. Copyright Notice.

Related Projects. I am currently working a new project that will require a shrink fit to be used in two places. Unfortunately I do not have any experience in using these. We are pressing a steel S45C worm on to a steel shaft dont have material picked. The worm OD is. I have a basic understanding of how much I will have to heat the worm to get the ID to expand, but I really don't understand how to calculate the pressure created by the interference or how to convert that into a max torque value.
I certainly don't expect anyone to do the math for me, but any pointers would be appreciated. As a side note I do have a copy of the machinery handbook which gave me the interference fits required for FN fits, but there is no numerical explanation of the holding strength of these fits. Thanks in advance. I think this is covered in "Mechanical Engineering Design" by J.
Machinery's handbook has everything you need in it. I have the 25th edition and it is under the Allowances and Tolerances section, pages - to start. In the index, look up Fits. You can find the correct subtopics below that one.Bushings are available in standard sizes with both inside and outside diameters surfaces finished, and are commonly available in many sizes.
Typically, bushings are designed and manufactured 0. Diameters greater than 3 inches, the outside diameters are designed 0. The effective interference of the press fit is designed and facilitated within the target hole which the bushing is installed. Additionally, the material which the bushing has been pressed into distorts some as well.
In general, this diameter changes are equal to 70 to per cent of the amount of the material interference or fit. Unfortunately, precisely or mathematically predicting the size change due to the effective compressive forces applied during installation has not been shown to be accurate. Typical installation compression forces and effective diameter changes may be modeled or characterized by fabricating several test cases and measuring the range and variations of the actual fit.
Often, bushings are designed with additional diametrical material requiring a post press fit installation machine process to accurately ream to the desired diameter. Shrink fits are facilitated by chilling the bushing using a suitable median, such as liquid nitrogen, dry ice, or placing the bushing within a freezer.
Cooling down the bushing is preferred rather than heating the target housing. Normally, the bushing is of significantly less mass than the target housing, though heating the housing and simultaneously cooling the bushing is no uncommon.
The mating surfaces of both the bushing and housing should be thoroughly cleaned and imperfections as well as burrs removed. Membership Register Login. Copyright Notice.
