The weight of the components supported by the bearing, together with external forces, generally exceed the requisite minimum load. If this is not the case, the bearing must be subjected to an additional radial load.

Axial load carrying capacityBearings mounted on an adapter sleeve on plain shafts without a fixed abutment:

Fap = 0,003 B d

provided the bearings are correctly mounted.

Fa/Fr ≤ e → P = Fr + Y1 Fa

Fa/Fr > e → P = 0,65 Fr + Y2 Fa
