Course Title: Rolling-Element Bearings: Fundamentals and Mechanics
Course Date: 11/30/2020 - 12/1/2020
Location: Virtual/Online
Cost: $1,095

Course Description

Examine fundamental geometry, kinematics, Hertzian contact mechanics, internal load distributions, preloading, stiffness and various nonlinear relationships of rolling-element bearings. Explore how system performance characteristics are affected by both internal bearing parameters and various bearing row configurations.  Learn about boundary influences, such as fit-ups and relative thermal expansions, and gain knowledge related to the design, sizing, analysis and troubleshooting of rolling-element bearings.

This course is ideal for engineers working with mechanisms that contain rolling-element bearings.  The topics covered are designed to broaden understanding of fundamentals, highlight important intricacies, and provide a solid foundation for both bearing users and those aspiring to become bearing specialists.
