On May 16-17th 2017 a seminar about shaft and rolling bearing calculation is arranged in Atlanta (USA). The seminar is held in English language.

The contents is:

  • Calculation of bearing life according ISO 281 and ISO/TS 16281
    • Calculation basics
    • Main differences between the methods
    • Load capacities
  • Calculation of load distribution in the bearing
    • Influence factors, bearing clearance, elastic expansion
  • Calculation using load spectra
  • Required hardness depth for large bearings
  • Possibilities for parameter variations in the bearing calculation
  • Ball bearings
    • Spin-to-roll-ratio
    • Clearance at four-point-bearings
    • Influence of centrifugal forces and gyroscopic moments
  • Roller bearings
    • Influence of roller profiles
    • Extended calculation of pressure distribution
  • Interaction between shaft and bearing calculation
    • Natural frequencies, bearing stiffness
    • Combinations of spindle bearings
    • Systems of several shafts
  • Definition of shaft systems
  • Positioning of shafts
  • Load spectra, variation of power flow, planetary gear stages
  • Possibilities to define bearing pretension
  • Parameter variations in the shaft calculation
  • Consideration of housing stiffness
  • Modal analysis

Pricing is $950 per person including Lunch and documentation. The location is not defined yet.
