Abstract

The strength of built up guns depends on the shrinkages allowed between cylinders and therefore for a given strength, the assembly is either selective or the nominal sizes are so chosen as to give the required shrinkage for a worst combination, it can be seen from the analysis that with little disadvantage tolerances can be greatly increased assuming random assemblies of parts whose sizes follow a normal pattern. This can bring down production costs considerably.
