Chagas, C., Freitas, T., Silva, R., and Carneiro, B., "Correlation between Simulations and Tests for Determining the Stress State on Raceways of Bearings Due to the Press Fitting and Loading at Test Rig," SAE Technical Paper 2012-36-0453, 2012, doi:10.4271/2012-36-0453.
Nowadays it is common for engineering applications the usage of software in parallel to test for a better understanding about some phenomena of study. The present paper intents to correlate different software and experimental practices to understand the stress state on the bearing raceway. The most important factor which determines the bearing life is the operational load. Others factors such as the stress state on the raceway due to press fit process can contribute to reduce the bearing life. A large number of factors have been studied to know the behavior of press fit. This paper, treats about the press fit and operational loading.
