Imagine a thick cylinder with a retaining ring groove cut in the ID. I'm replacing the retaining ring with a split ring pressed into the groove.

The split ring I'll have made along with the tool to install it.

What I would like to determine is the amount of interference and the force required to press the ring into the groove.

I can do pin and hole press fit calcs all day and twice on Sunday. Now I'm not looking for a formula...unless it's in Mathcad, then by all means .... I'm just looking for a starting point.. an idea where I should look.


Cheers!
Ken
