Heat generation in angular contact bearings, dynamic analysis and optimization of high speed spindle bearings require to know the load-displacement values in for bearing components. The equations that describe the relationship among preload, speed, and contact angle are solved usually using iterative methods. A new method that uses genetic algorithms is proposed to solve the algebraic system with multiple dependencies with a good precision in evaluation of angular contact angle.
