Determination of bearing size

Sliding Velocity v

The sliding velocity for bushings and thrust washers results from the equation:

v = 5.82 × 10-7× d × ß × f
 

Where:

v sliding velocity, m/s
d bore diameter of bushing mm
= mean diameter of thrust washer mm
(dimension J in bearing tables)



f angular frequency or rotational frequency, min-1
ß half turning angle in degrees (see illustration bottom)
= 90° in case of rotational movement

   

Drawing turning angle


The complete oscillation = 4 ß
i.e., from point 0 to 4

Determination of bearing size

Sliding Velocity Factor c2

Increasing sliding velocity will lead to increased heat generation in the sliding surface; the wear rate increases. Therefore, the velocity factor c2 has to be considered when designing the bearing.
