Vibration behaviour of the application
In many applications bearing stiffness is of the same order as the stiffness of the surrounding structure. This opens the possibility to reduce vibrations of the application by properly choosing the bearing (including preload and clearance) and its arrangement in the application. There are three ways to reduce vibration:
- Remove the critical excitation vibration from the application.
- Dampen the critical excitation vibration between excitant component and resonant components.
- Change the stiffness of the structure to change the critical frequency.
