English translation:D may be Durchmesser
Explanation:
This is a common situation in mechanics where a shaft is slightly larger in diameter than the corresponding bore (hole). So the item to be pushed onto the shaft is heated up to expand the size of the hole, or it has to be pressed onto the shaft with great force and needs to be centred and properly aligned.
