Properly designing a heavily loaded journal bearing requires knowledge of the contact pressure to ensure it is within the materials’ operating limits. It is common to use the average contact pressure, however this method can be inaccurate. Learn about alternate approaches in our whitepaper, "CALCULATING MAXIMUM CONTACT PRESSURE ON A HEAVILY LOADED JOURNAL BEARING". In addition, we will also provide you with a complimentary "Bearing Pressure Calculator".
