Automotive How to optimize an interference fit for a sheet metal ring

  1. Oct 7, 2016 #1
    I am new to this forum. I need to design an interference fit for a 1.5 mm thick SS ring. The interference fit is between this ring and another 1.5 mm thick SS sheet metal can without any groove. The ring is bent outwards at a specific angle.(plz refer attached image)

    We know amount of loading that would come on this ring and will have to be supported by flat land on the ring.

    What equations should I refer to solve this and optimize the radial interference for specified loading coming on the ring?

    There is a way of working this out but it would take a lot of explaining .

    Is this a homework problem or a real engineering problem ?

    What is your level of technical knowledge ?
