Study on Static Assembly Interference Pressure between a Thin-Wall Flexible Cup and a Hollow Flexible Shaft
Distribution of static interference pressure between a thin-wall flexible cup and a flexible shaft fluctuates heavily along the axis of the cup and is quite different from pressure distribution of common interference styles. In this article, aiming at solving distribution of static interference pressure between a thin-wall flexible cup with much thicker bottom and a hollow flexible shaft, mechanical model and mathematical model of solving the problem were built based on classic thin shell theory. Special difference is that precise special solution of bending equation of thin cylindrical shell was used to substitute the special solution which is original from bending deformation of thin cylindrical shell in no moment status. And a brand new general solution, the relational expression between bending deformation of thin wall of the cup and distribution of the static interference pressure, was obtained. Then, a method used to solve the pressure distribution was presented by solving integral equation and applying superposition principle for the first time. Through using the method to solve an example and comparing calculated results with FEM results, it was proved that the method is correct and effective.
