The description of geometry for axial angular contact bearings is the same as for radial angular contact bearings.  The only difference in geometry is a value of 0.535 for the conformity, instead of the 0.52 used for radial bearings.

The results for load distribution are the same for the selection of axial or radial angular contact bearings, but for axial bearings additional reduction factors are considered in the calculation of load capacity. Therefore, the resulting life is smaller if the bearing is calculated as axial bearing.

Standard axial angular contact bearings have a contact angle of 60°.
