Modeling of Tapered Roller Bearings in Structural Analyses 840773

Incorporating tapered roller bearings in finite element and other structural analyses requires special considerations. Tapered roller bearing properties such as induced thrust, induced moment, load zone, and bearing stiffness can substantially affect the results of such analyses. This paper will discuss pertinent tapered roller bearing structural properties, two potential modeling techniques, and several examples on how bearing models were incorporated into structural analyses.
