Abstract : The effect of thermal stress was analyzed for the case of a shrink-fit operation involving a restraining shoulder in the jacket and the liner, and the point of initial shrinkage was not at the shoulder. Consideration is given to the possibility of slippage between the jacket and the liner. A numerical example was worked out for the 120mm gun tube. (Author)
