Vibration of Rolling Element Bearings
- 35 Downloads
Rolling element bearings are used widely in rotating machinery. A significant variety of rolling element bearing types is available, and they are categorized by the shape of the ball or roller elements; the radial or axial loading direction; the ball type such as deep groove or angular contact; the roller type such as plain or tapered; etc. As most of them are standardized in ISO/JIS, interchangeability is guaranteed. This chapter introduces the dynamic properties of some rolling bearings, but does not make any reference to the static properties given in bearing manufacturers’ catalogues, such as load capacity, sizing, life estimation, and so on.
