Damping in a Rolling bearing arrangement

Every rotating machine has a number of frequencies at which it tends to vibrate,called the eigenfrequencies or natural frequencies. The job of the designer is to avoid operating machinery close to these points, as this can result in a high level of mechanical vibration, noise and excessive wear. To eliminate these major resonances or to avoid operating the equipment at the critical speeds which could induce bad vibrations, SKF engineers have developed practical and theoretical methods of analysing bearing components and their contribution to reducing vibration.
