Abstract

The paper deals with the problem of modelling a plane interference joint (a ring with a wheel) by means of the finite element method (FEM), and determining stresses which are produced in this joint by the assembly (interference) itself and by locally acting working loads. An ADINA FE system is used for determining the contact stresses and the stiction forces that occur within the contact between the joined elements. An analysis was made on the possibility of the occurrence of local slips and the loss of contact of the joined surfaces in the zone of action of the concentrated force. A simple, Coulomb friction model was assumed and, on that basis, the condition of permissible loa
