Longest fatigue life is one of the most decisive criteria for design of rolling element bearing. However, the lifetime of bearing will depend on more than one numbers of explanations like fatigue, lubrication, and thermal traits. Within the present work goals, specifically the dynamic load capability, life factors, and life of bearing have been optimized utilizing a optimization algorithm centered upon particle swarm optimization (PSO). Here, life factors are being represented based on reliability, materials, and processing and operating conditions. Also from the reliability concepts, strict series system is considered which depicts the total bearing system. A convergence study has been performed to make certain the most desirable factor in the design. The most suitable design outcome shows the effectiveness and efficiency of algorithm.
