It is shown experimentally that relative movement of shrink-fit connections occurs on mating surfaces even if the transmitting torque does not exceed the static frictional torque. However, there is a transmitting torque threshold below which no relative movement occurs. The experimental thresholds agree well with predictions from theoretical calculations of the slip model, which is based on the numerical results of shear stress variation along the interface and on Coulomb’s law of friction.
