This course builds on the foundations of the essential course and challenges the experienced engineer in areas such as failure modes, friction & wear, fatigue life calculation methods and load distribution. This is an exceptional course for engineers with 2-3 years work experience in bearings or past attendees of the Essential Concepts of Bearing Technology.

Course participants will enhance understanding of:

  • Bearing Macrogeometry: Clearance, Free Contact Angle, Interference Fits
  • Ball/Roller Loading: Static/Inertial
  • Contact Stresses, Deflection, & Subsurface Stresses
  • Internal Load Distribution – Speed & Motion
  • Concepts of Friction & Wear: Surface Topography
  • Fundamentals of Fatigue Life Theory
  • Contact Friction
  • Bearing Friction & Reference Speeds
  • Permanent Deformations & Static Capacity
  • Fatigue Life Prediction: Standards & Advanced Calculations
  • Testing Methods & Statistical Analysis
  • Lubricants & Rheology & EHL
  • Shaft-Bearing Systems & Performance Analysis

Attendees receive CEUs upon successful completion of this course.
