TUTORIAL 5
ANTIFRICTION BEARINGS

PROBLEM 1 A deep groove ball bearing is to be selected for a gearing
application. The bearing operates in normal conditions closed to ideal
conditions. This bearing is subjected to the variable load given in the table. Shaft
diameter must be at least 50 mm. The other features are,

Required reliability: 90% Service life: 20000 hours
Oil used: SAE 30 Oil temperature: 40 C

Radial Force Axial Force Rotational Speed Running Period
(kN) (kN) (rpm) Percentage (%)
2.7 0.3 2000 35
2.4 0.5 2400 40
2 0.2 2600 25

Select the bearing with minimum possible bore diameter.

PROBLEM 2 A bearing is subjected to a radial load of 12 kN and an axial load
of 8.5 kN. Shaft rotating at n = 900 rpm, will have a minimum diameter of 65 mm.
with a reliability of 99% and a life of 1500 millions of revolutions, select the
appropriate bearing. Grease lubrication is preferred due to easier maintenance.
Take a
23
=1.

PROBLEM 3 A cylindrical roller bearing NUP 23 10 E, is selected for a machine
tool support. The radial reaction at bearing location is calculated to be 8 kN with
conditions.. Outer diameter of housing is to be 130 mm.
(Extra: Find re-lubrication time and amount of grease needed. Also determine the
tolerance fields of the shaft and the housing for standard clearance)

Lubrication type: Grease Shaft diameter: 50mm Reliability: 99%
Rotational speed: 1000 rpm Required life: 15000 hours

PROBLEM 4

a) The pinion shaft, transmitting a torque T is shown in the figure schematically. To
provide the overhung pinion with maximum rigidity, two tapered roller bearings are
arranged in O- arrangement. The radial, axial and tangential forces acting on the
pinion are:
W
r
= 2540 N , W
a
= 4500 N, and W
t
= 12000 N.
The bearing K is 323 08 whereas the bearing L is selected as 302 08. The pitch radius
of the pinion is r
p
=36mm. The shaft rotates at 1000 rpm. The bearings are lubricated
by SAE 40 oil and the operating temperature is 60
o
C. Calculate the rating life of these
tapered rolling bearings at reliability of 99%. (Bearings operate in normal
conditions with uncontrolled operating conditions.)

b) If two angular contact bearings (72 08B and 73 08B at the K and L locations,
respectively) in the O- arrangement are used instead of tapered roller bearings,
determine the rating life of angular contact bearings under the same calculated forces.

SOLUTION 1: To select a bearing from the catalogue, an equivalent load which will
have the same effect as the loadings given is to be calculated. Using the formula given
on page 40 in the STEYR catalogue, (the case in question is the one in Fig. 2.2/5).

With C

checked whether it actually satisfies the life equation. Lets select light series
bearing

For /1 = 8.24 : a

SOLUTION 2: Trying different bearings, if possible, select a bearing with d = 65
mm, if not either use two bearings at this location or increase diameter of shaft in
order to use one bearing.

For d = 65 mm, heavy series deep groove ball bearing, 6413 has C

for 64 13, X = 0.56, Y = 1.5 and e=0.29 for F

Assuming uniform distribution of load to all bearings, one must use four of 6413;
therefore deep groove ball bearings are not suitable.

Single row angular contact ball bearings:

Since F
a
/F
r
= 0.708 < e = 1.14 P = Fr = 12 C
ISO
= 231.1 kN
For d = 65 mm, heavy series one is 73 13 B with C
ISO
= 77.9 kN.
If only one bearing is to be used, 73 30 B C
ISO
= 231 kN with d = 150 mm should
be selected.

Four point contact ball bearing:

a

F

ISO

With d= 65 mm, maximum available C
ISO
is 155kN with QJ 313. Two of them
would be needed. If one bearing is to be used, QJ 318 with d = 90 mm would be
appropriate with C
ISO
= 238 kN.

Double row angular contact ball bearing:

F

P= (1) (12) + (0.73) (8.5) = 18.205 kN C

For d = 65 mm, 33 13 is available with C
ISO
= 110 kN. Maximum available C
ISO
is
249 kN of 33 22, having d = 110 mm.

Tapered roller bearing:

Selecting X = 0.4 & Y = 1.35 gives min. P. C
ISO

For d = 65 mm, 323 13 series(maximum capacity) is available with C
ISO
of
229kN. For this bearing X = 0.4 & Y = 1.75.So minimum C
ISO
required becomes
282 kN which is larger than the tapered bearing series capability for 323 13 series.

If two of the tapered bearings selected from d=65 mm series, two 303 13(C
ISO
=170
kN and X=0.4&Y=1.75) will be adequate since minimum C
ISO
required becomes 282
kN. However tandem arrangement is not a feasible option for tapered roller bearings.

Trying d=75 mm bearing class (323 15) of C
ISO
=295 kN and of X = 0.4 & Y = 1.75,
one can see that minimum C
ISO
required is 282 kN which makes this bearing

for smallest P.

P = (0.65) (12) + (1.55) (8.5) = 20.97 C
ISO
= 404 kN

For d = 65 mm, C
ISO
= 73.7 kN is available with 23 13.
404 kN is not available with a single bearing. Even if 2 of bearings are used they are
required to have C
ISO
> 202 kN and for type 23 26 C
ISO
= 212 kN but d = 130 mm.

Cylindrical roller bearing:

For cylindrical roller bearings, axial force does not enter into the
calculations; but since F
a
/F
r
= 0.708 > 0.4; it isnt appropriate for this application if
used alone. (Page 44 of STEYR catalogue)

Cylindrical roller bearing with a thrust bearing:
Cylindrical roller bearing will carry only radial load and thrust bearing will
For roller bearing,
P = F
r
= 12 kN C
ISO
= 171.9 kN

With d = 65 mm, NU 23 13 (C
ISO
= 176 kN) is available. Speed limit should also be
checked. For NU 23 13, limit is 4200 rpm which is higher than the rotational speed of
the shaft. Therefore speed limit is not violated.

For thrust bearing;

P = Fa = 8.5 kN C
ISO
= 163.7 kN
With 65 mm diameter,
514 13 is available, single acting, with C
ISO
= 171 kN.

METU ME 308 Machine Elements II Spring 2011

524 16 is available, double acting thrust bearing, with C
ISO
= 193 kN.

Checking speed limit for thrust bearing with grease lubrication,
For 514 13, speed limit is 1100 rpm and for 524 16 it is 850 rpm. Since 850 rpm is
lower than the shaft rotational speed, it is not appropriate to use double acting
thrust bearing. If the axial load changes direction, which will force to use a double
acting thrust bearing, oil lubrication should be used with speed limit of 1200 rpm
with 524 16.

Spherical roller bearing:

Using X = 0.67 & Y = 2.4 to yield to minimum P,
P = 0.67 12 + 2.4 8.5 = 28.44 kN CISO =407.5 kN

For d = 65 mm, C
ISO
=224 kN with 223 13 C. Nearest larger C
ISO
= 443 kN is
available with 223 19 C with d = 95 mm.

The same option exists here as was the case in cylindrical roller bearing. Spherical
P = Fr = 12 kN C
ISO
= 171.9 kN

With d = 65 mm, C
ISO
= 224 kN with 223 13 C. Selecting the same thrust bearing
514
13 or 524 16 whether axial load is changing direction or not.

The results are as follows;

Although deep groove ball bearings are cheap and widely used, 4 of them are
needed which is not acceptable. For single row angular contact ball bearings, 3 of
them are required with d = 65 mm, rejected. Taking one with d = 150 mm is
unacceptable because the difference with the shaft diameter is too high. With four
point contact ball bearing, one has two options: 2 of them with d=65 mm (QJ
313), or one bearing with d = 90 mm (QJ 318) which means 25 mm increase is
shaft diameter (acceptable). For double row angular contact ball bearing, either 3
of them with d = 65 mm would be used or 2 of them with d = 110 mm would be
used. For tapered roller bearings, two 323 13 with d=65 mm shaft or one 323 14
with d=70 mm shaft is adequate. Multiple roller tapered bearings mounted in
tandem arrangement are not generally used therefore a single 323 14 is more
suitable. Generally tapered roller bearings should be used in pairs with direct or
indirect mountings.

Although self aligning ball bearings tolerate misalignments more, they are
not suitable for high loads as seen. No reasonable solution exists with this kind of
bearing. Cylindrical roller bearing is not suitable since axial to radial load ratio is
greater than 0.4. But it can be used with a thrust bearing. When this is the case NU
2313 will be the choice. The thrust bearing will be 51413 with grease lubrication if
axial force does not change direction. If it reverses, 52416 is the choice with oil
lubrication due to low speed limits for grease lubrication. Spherical roller bearing is
not an alternative alone but it can be used with the thrust bearings above. But most
probably, it is more costly to use spherical roller bearings than using a cylindrical
roller bearing.

In tolerance specification, the aim is to specify tolerances such that there will be no
interference between raceway and rotating elements creating pre-stresses which will
reduce the life of bearing considerably. Hence, the expansion of inner ring and
contraction of outer ring will be calculated and the sum should not exceed the
minimum clearance of the unmounted bearing so that after mounting no interference
exists.

R < 30 should be satisfied.

As the radial forces are known, now let us designate the bearings.

From the STEYR catalogue, page 42, bearing A is defined as that bearing which
has to absorb the external force. If one looks at the figure it is easily seen that the
bearing located at K should absorb the external axial force, W
a
. Therefore bearing
K is designated with A, and L is designated with B.

Rewrite the axial and radial forces with the new designation.

Note that each external radial force acting on the tapered roller bearing gives rise to an
induced axial force, due to taper angle, which again turns into an external force for the
opposing bearing. The equivalent axial loads acting on the bearings K&L can be
found from the formulas in Figure 2.2/8 of STEYR catalogue (Page 42).

The life of angular contact ball bearings is much shorter than the life of tapered
roller bearings for this application. Angular contact bearings having higher C
so

should be preferred.
