# Shrink-Fits Assembly

## Assembly temperatures for shrink-fits.

Shrink-fits are assembled by heating them to temperatures where the expansion exceeds the interference. Required heating temperature can be calculated as

dt = δ / α di                               (1)

where

dt = temperature heating (oC, oF)

δ = diametric interference (mm, in)

α = coefficient of linear expansion (m/moK, in/inoF)

di = initial diameter of hole before expansion (mm, in)

Diametric interference can be calculated as

δ = dt α di                               (2)
