Elastic deformations of the outer ring can be optionally enabled. This is an extension to the base bearing software.
The outer ring of the bearing is modeled by a Timoshenko beam element. So bending, axial deformations and shear deformations are considered. The shear correction factor is fixed to 1. The calculation should only be used if the approximation as beam seems to be appropriate. The beam does not consider deformations within the cross section for example in axial direction for multi row bearings.
