Linear elasticity: The calculator is based on elastic deformation (Lame's equation), i.e. the stresses should be smaller than the elastic limit of the element materials.

Hollow shaft: This calculator can also be applied for hollow shafts (di>0).

Self locking: The cone type shaft-hub connection is self locking (Ff=Fp) when μ=tan(α/2)=(d1-d2)/(2L)=C/2 where α is the cone angle and C=(d1-d2)/L. In shaft-hub connections which need to be self locking the cone is in the range C=0.1..0.2.

Surface roughness: The interference should be corrected for the effect of surface roughness. The flattening of roughness peaks by mounting under high pressure is generally estimated at 10% of the Rz-value where Rz=6Ra (ISO 6336-2). The correction at the diametrical interference thus becomes 0.12(Rz1+Rz2). If the surface roughness of the shaft Ra1=0.5μm and that of the bore Ra2=1μm then dδ=0.126(0.5+1)=1.8μm and δeff=δm-dδ where δeff=effective value of diametrical interference, δm=measured value of diametrical interference and dδ=correction for surface roughness.

Coefficient of friction: Approximate value for the coefficient of friction μ are: for steel - steel contacts dry between 0.1 and 0.15, lubricated between 0.05 and 0.1, for steel - yellow metal contacts dry between 0.05 and 0.1.

Cone type Clutches: In cone clutches which are designed not to jam the cone is always above C>0.2. The maximum interference pressure in cone clutches depends on the materials used and the operating conditions (frictional heating: Limiting PV value).
