 Careful Introduction of Force


  • avoid corner breakage resulting from stress concentrations close
    to edges in shaft-hub joints


  • avoid notch effects and abrupt changes in the direction of forces

  • floating fastening with small axial bores by means of
    tension rods or bolts

    o introduction of force over large area

    o limiting to
    compressive stress

    o remember to
    compensate for thermal expansion using spring
    methods of clamping
