Frm = 0,02 C

Except for SKF Explorer bearings:
Frm = 0,017 C

Fa/Fr ≤ e → P = Fr

Fa/Fr > e → P = 0,4 Fr + Y Fa1)

Perform calculations
Equivalent static bearing load

For additional information
Equivalent static bearing load
P0 = Fr

P0 < Fr → P0 = Fr

1) When determining the axial load Fa, refer to Calculating the axial load for bearings mounted singly or paired in tandem.
