Equivalent bearing loads

The equivalent dynamic bearing load can be calculated:

  • for the radial roller set using
    P = Fr
  • for the thrust roller set using
    P = Fa + 4,4 M/d1

The equivalent static bearing load can be calculated:

  • for the radial roller set using
    P0 = Fr
  • for the thrust roller set using
    P0 = Fa + 4,4 M/d1
where
P=equivalent dynamic bearing load [kN]
P0
=equivalent static bearing load [kN]
d1=outside diameter of inner ring [mm] (→ product table)
Fa=axial load [kN]
Fr=radial load [kN]
M=moment load [kNmm]
