Force Required to Fit (3 different materials)

  1. Sep 23, 2009 #1
    I have three different parts:
    1. An Aluminum Bronze Outer Ring
    2. A Neoprene Ring
    3. A Phenolic Composite Ring.

    The (2) fits into a recess in (1), (2's) purpose is to seal between (1) & (3).

    What I would like to do is create a calculator on excel that will calculate the force required to insert (3) into (1) & (2).

    I am presuming that the Formulas here wont work as I have the neoprene compressing but also being backed up by the aluminum bronze.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have a little maths and physics knowledge at HND level but thats my limit im affraid.
