Finite Element Analysis of Hybrid Ceramic Ball Bearing Contact
Because of its border nonlinearity, the contact between rolling element and ball race is difficult to be solved .With the development of computer technology and FEA theory, practical solution about contact is possible. This thesis which takes B7005C hybird ceramic ball bearing for example draws inner and outer contact stress and contact deformation and compares the results with Hertz solution by modeling, meshing, and setting contact pairs in ANSYS. The results show the use of ANSYS in bearing simulation is ideal, and can take a reference for the bearing simulation.
