Equivalent static bearing load

The equivalent static bearing load can be determined as follows:

For single bearings and bearings arranged in tandem


For bearing pairs, arranged back-to-back or face-to-face

where


P0=equivalent static load on the bearing set [kN]
Fr=radial load acting on the bearing set [kN]
Fa=axial load acting on the bearing set [kN]

If P0 < Fr, P0 = Fr should be used.

The values for the factor Y0 depend on the bearing contact angle and are listed for:

  • single bearings and bearings arranged in tandem (table 1)
  • bearings paired back-to-back and face-to-face (table 2)
