Ever wonder how to calculate the life of a ball bearing? Did you ever need to calculate a radial ball bearing’s load rating? AST Bearings just published a white paper entitled “Radial Ball Bearings – Life and Load Ratings.” In its technical discussion of life and load ratings, the paper discusses various aspects of the radial ball bearing calculations including:
- Basic dynamic load rating
- Life formula
- Adjusted life formula
- Reliability factor
- Material factor
- Operating conditions
- Basic static load rating
- Equivalent dynamic bearing load “P”
Other White Papers Available
This white paper about life and load ratings of radial ball bearings joins an extensive and growing bearing library including white papers about radial ball bearings, spherical plain bearings, bushings (plain bearings), and much more. AST engineers and technical writers will be constantly updating and adding new materials to this section of our website so bookmark it, share it, and come back frequently.
Other Resources for Bearings
Check out all of the bearing white papers at White Papers & Technical Information About Bearings. In fact, why not check out all of the bearing resource materials (including free CAD models, FAQs, Bearing Interchange, Online Catalog, and more) available at AST Bearings’ Resource Center. It’s “where to go when you want to know…”
What Other Topics Do You Want Discussed?
While AST Bearings has covered a wide range of bearing topics in its Resource Center, we may not have covered what you are interested in learning more about.
