I'm looking for some help understanding bending stresses and stress concentrations in Morse Tapers (or any press-fit or interference-fit geometry). Specifically, I'm trying to understand the influence of a slot (and orientation of the slot) in the female component of a Morse Taper on the stresses developed in the male component when the male component is subject to lateral bending. I'm trying to find a relatively simple way to express the stresses acting on the male component mathematically as well as determine WHERE the maximum stresses would develop on the male component within the taper junction. Thank you so much!
