The effective stiffness of mechanical systems is determined not only by stiffness characteristics of their components but also by designed interactions between the components. Influence of interactions is both due to elastic deformations in the connections between the interacting components (contact deformations; see Chapter 4) and due to the location, size, and shape of the connection areas (sup-porting conditions). Relatively slight changes in the supporting conditions may result in up to one to two decimal orders of magnitude changes of deformations under the specified forces, as well as in very significant changes in stress conditions of...
