Essential Concepts of Bearing Technology
Fifth Edition
by Tedric A. Harris

Essential Concepts of Bearing Technology builds a basic understanding of the fundamentals underlying the use, design, and performance of rolling bearings.

Features:

  • Provides an in-depth introduction to the fundamental concepts underlying rolling bearing behavior
  • Uncovers the principles behind the catalog values given by manufacturers, leading to more informed choices
  • Builds a firm background for more advanced study of performance and longevity in more complex applications
  • Includes a CD-ROM with numerical examples and many tables of data compiled from ABMA/ANSI standards
