This online engineering PDH course takes the student through the various steps needed to gain valuable insight into the subject matter. The steps include design, types, material/manufacture, load and stress analysis, sample problems, and sketches of actual industrial applications with expert analysis.

 

Gears, shafts, and bearings are the backbone of equipment used in the field of Mechanical Power Transmission. They are the primary components in such things as transmissions, drive trains, and gear boxes. Transmissions and drive trains deliver power from the engine to the wheels of a variety of vehicles ranging from automobiles to earth moving equipment. Gear boxes of a variety of sizes and shapes power the many machines and equipment found in our factories and in our homes.

COURSE TITLE: Ball Bearing Design and Applications
COURSE NO: M05-017
COURSE PROVIDER: Robert Tata, P.E.
Ball Bearing Design and Applications
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the basic principles of the rotational motion that occur in every day products such as washing machines, manufacturing machines, automobiles, industrial equipment, and airplanes. Without anti-friction bearings, these products would be larger, heavier than and not nearly as efficient as they are today. Anti-friction bearings support the mechanism that cleans the clothes in a washing machine; they support the many shafts that are found in manufacturing machines and automobile transmissions; and they support the ever increasingly sized rotors in an airplane jet engine. They are called "anti-friction" because they operate in the high 90% efficiency range and therefore save countless amounts of energy in today's dynamic world.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for mechanical, automotive, civil, machine design engineers and any other professional interested in ball bearing design and applications.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding how the bearing inner and outer ring pathway curvature and shoulder heights are proportioned
  • Understanding what bearing component is most likely to fail first in a typical application
  • Learning about the steps taken in the manufacture of ball bearing parts
  • Understanding the difference between radial, angular contact, and double row ball bearings
  • Learning about annular Bearing Engineers Committee ball bearing inner and outer ring diameter tolerance classifications and how they are used
  • Understanding the role that internal clearance plays in the performance of ball bearings
  • Knowing the equation used to predict the operating life of ball bearings under various load and speed conditions
  • Familiarizing with the various devices that are used in the mounting of ball bearings on shafts and in housings
  • Learning the analysis and equations used in predicting ball bearing life while supporting spur, helical, and bevel gear shafts
  • Learning how preloading bearings can make shafts that they support run truer in precision machine applications

Development of Grease Lubricated Ball Bearings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course details the pitfalls and successes that led to developing the bearing package that met the final goal and makes recommendations on how to improve the design even further. It takes the reader through a three-year program that successfully developed a high speed grease lubricated ball bearing for aircraft accessory application. The first of this two-part program developed a high speed bearing package from six different separator grease combinations from which a combination that exceeded the program goal of operating at 50,000 rpm (one million DN) for 50 hours was selected.

 

Grease lubricated ball bearings are a design tool that no engineer should overlook. They are a self-contained, self-lubricated highly efficient engineering package that can provide a lifetime of service in a small space with little or no maintenance.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers, aeronautical engineers, machine design engineers, and anyone else who is interested a gaining an understanding of grease lubricated ball bearings.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding ball bearing design, terminology, variations and use
  • Knowing how a grease lubricated ball bearing can benefit the aircraft accessory industry
  • Knowing how a turbine lab test set-up was used to develop high speed bearing packages
  • Learning about the various bearing separator-grease combinations that were candidates for high speed test evaluation
