Rolling bearing know-how 3 - Hertzian Pressure - for technicians - Online


Building on our online training courses on the basics of rolling bearings, we take on the topic of "Hertzian pressure". Contact pressure according to “Hertz” plays an important role in determining the load-bearing capacity of a rolling bearing.

Where and how is Hertzian pressure applied in rolling bearing technology? What should be considered and where can I find the necessary data and tables? What influence does the internal geometry have on the bearing properties?

This topic is an important part of the optimization of rolling bearings. How far can you go, where are the limits?

Using calculated examples, the training participant himself will be in the camp to determine the pressure on a rolling-element-raceway-contact in a rolling bearing.
