Development of Software Applying the Hertz Contact Theory to Commercial Rolling Bearings 2005-01-4031

This paper presents a software developed to apply the Hertz contact formulation to bearings with rolling elements, estimating the occurrence of surface fatigue failure in this kind of parts. Considering the wide range of designs in the automotive industry using this kind of bearings, a dedicated software, using a simple language, becomes a useful tool to reduce the design time, predicting in a satisfactory manner the failure of the bearing. The software developed shows a high level of accuracy, when compared to data provided by rolling bearing manufacturers.
