Step thrust bearings support axial loads in rotating machinery. Learn how to maximize the load capacity of these bearings with shape and topology optimization.

Analyzing Vibrations in Rotating Machinery Due to Bearing Misalignment

June 25, 2019

You can use structural analysis to compare the angular velocity, axial displacement, and bearing reaction moment on the shaft for rotating machinery with aligned and misaligned bearings.

Evaluating the Impact of Bearing Misalignment on Rotor Vibration

May 14, 2019

Bearings are found in devices ranging from MEMS and turbines to electric motors and even ships. How we account for a bearing’s misalignment (and the resulting rotor vibration) depends on its use.

How to Model Fluid Friction in Joints with COMSOL Multiphysics®

January 9, 2019

Follow along as we demonstrate how to model fluid friction in joints using 2 rotordynamics examples: a piston and a reciprocating engine.

Predicting the Stability of Rotor Systems with the COMSOL® Software
