MESYS Calculation Software

The friction coefficient is used to calculate the friction moment of the bearing assuming coulomb friction in the contacts. In the actual version, this is only available for ball bearings. The friction moment is only considering the load dependent part of the friction; the no load part is not considered.

A proposal by (Harris, et al., 2007) is a value of 0.1 for the friction coefficient.
