Basic rating life calculation

The basic rating life can be calculated when the operating conditions are within a certain range of specific bearing load p and sliding velocity v. The calculation procedures vary for different bearing types. Besides load and sliding velocity, the basic rating life depends on the relubrication interval, load direction, operating temperature, angle of oscillation and the sliding surface combination.
