Sliding frictional moment

The sliding frictional moment can be calculated using

Msl = Gsl µsl

Msl =sliding frictional moment [Nmm]
Gsl =variable (table 1), depending on:
  • the bearing type
  • the bearing mean diameter dm [mm] = 0,5 (d + D)
  • the radial load Fr [N]
  • the axial load Fa [N]
µsl =sliding friction coefficient
