What is a Bearing Load Calculator?
A Bearing Load Calculator is a tool used to calculate the bearing area and bearing stress of a mechanical bearing based on its dimensions and the applied load.
Why use a Bearing Load Calculator?
- Design Considerations: It helps engineers in the design process by ensuring that the bearing can withstand the applied loads without exceeding allowable stresses.
- Material Selection: Allows for the selection of appropriate materials based on calculated stresses and loads.
- Prevent Failures: Helps in preventing bearing failures due to excessive stresses.
