Four point bearings considered as axial bearing

This selection can be used for slewing rings as done in (Harris, et al., 2009). Because of additional reduction factors for axial ball bearings the calculated life will be smaller than considered as a radial bearing.  The load distribution is the same as for the four-point bearing considered as radial bearing.
