Retaining Ring Engineering: Calculating Installation Stress
Retaining rings are installed by compressing into a bore (for internal rings) or expanding over a shaft(for external rings). This compression or expansion is normal and should not affect ring performance; however, too much compression or expansion may cause a ring to take a permanant set.
