For the last four decades, Tedric Harris' Rolling Bearing Analysis has been the "bible" for engineers involved in rolling bearing technology. Why do so many students and practicing engineers rely on this book? The answer is simple: because of its complete coverage from low- to high-speed applications and full derivations of the underlying mathematics from a leader in the field. The fifth edition of this classic reference is divided conveniently into two volumes, each focused on a specialized area of bearing technology. This option allows you to select the coverage that is best suited to your needs.
The second of two books, Advanced Concepts of Bearing Technology steps up the level to more dynamic and complex loading, more extreme operating conditions, and higher-speed applications. The authors examine several topics that are unique to the book, including mathematical relationships for internal load distribution under conditions of high speed, combined radial, axial, and moment loading, as well as the effects of raceway and roller profiling. They also delve into the mathematical development of rolling element-raceway lubricant film thickness and contact friction, the stress-life method for calculating bearing fatigue endurance, and the effects of shaft and supporting structure flexure on bearing loading and deflection.
Advanced Concepts of Bearing Technology is the perfect aid for analyzing complex performance and fatigue-life phenomena in advanced applications.
