Title: Bearing Fatigue Life and Industry Standards

Date: March 18, 2015

Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET

This webinar provides an introduction to bearing fatigue life calculation as set forth in industry standards. The presentation will offer an overview of the relevant industry standards, explain fatigue failure mechanisms and define concepts such as dynamic equivalent load, dynamic load rating and fatigue limit that are essential to understanding fatigue life calculations. We will also review the basic life and modified life calculation methods described in ISO 281:2007. This webinar provides the basic foundation for understanding and performing bearing fatigue life calculations.

Learning Objectives

Participants completing this webinar will be able to:

  • Identify industry standards that govern bearing fatigue life calculation and related load ratings
  • Understand the basic differences between the various fatigue life calculation methods explained in the industry standards
  • Understand how dynamic load rating is used in fatigue life calculation and potential issues arising from use of this load rating for other purposes
  • Define important terminology used in fatigue life standards and the concepts they represent
  • Perform basic bearing fatigue life calculations
