Bearing Fundamentals and Mechanics

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.

Bearing Analysis with ORBIS

Course Description:

Explore fundamental and advanced bearing analysis techniques with the ORBIS tool. Learn the ORBIS interface, its functional capabilities, key assumptions, what outputs are produced, and what they mean. Participate in numerous real-time examples depicting a wide range of common bearing analysis tasks for aerospace mechanisms.
