LOAD APPLIED TO A SINGLE BEARING

Useful calculation for an accurate bearing choice

Where:
Q = Load applied L = Distance between the center of gravity of the applied load and
the sliding axis of the bearings A = Distance between the center of gravity of the bearings

 

STATIC SAFETY COEFFICIENT

 

Fs = Co/F         Where:     Co= Static load factor    F  = Load applied to the bearing

 

The static safety factor determines the degree of safety that the bearing user wants to adopt against deformation of the bearing itself. A satisfactory degree of safety to avoid any malfunction should be:

Fs ≥ 3

                                                                                            

N.B.: In the two sections of this page we have only considered the static load because, in applications where the speed is relatively low (up to 0.5 m / sec) the sizing is purely static. If the application requires higher speeds, the values ​​of the dynamic allowable loads should be taken into consideration.

 

CALCULATION OF RESISTANCE

 

The strength of this material is defined as follows:

P0 = 750 N/mm2  

For this calculation, the formula derived from HERTZ’s theory is used, relating to the crushing and the specific pressure generated between two solid elastic bodies, by linear contact subjected to a load.

 

CALCULATION OF DURATION

 

Bearings’ life depends on the applied load and the number of rotations and is calculated as follows:

 

L = (C/P)                    Lh=(16666/n)x(C/P)p

 

L = 106   Nominal life in millions of revolutions, which is reached or exceeded by 90% of a sufficiently representative number of identical bearings, before the first signs of material fatigue appear
Lh Nominal duration in hours of operation, corresponding to definition L
C Dynamic load factor. For radial bearings C corresponds to a load of constant magnitude and direction after which a sufficiently representative number of identical bearings reaches a nominal life of one million revolutions
P Equivalent bearing load
p = 10/3 Duration exponent for cylindrical roller and needle roller bearings
