Home Products Alloys ToughMet BEARING CONTACT PRESSURE WHITE PAPER Thank you for your interest in our latest white paper, Calculating Maximum Contact Pressure on Heavily-loaded Bronze Journal Bearings Running on a Steel Shaft. The paper references the Bearing Pressure Calculator which accurately determines contact pressures for bronze bushings and steel shafts based on load diameter and bushing width. This calculator aids design decisions by providing a more accurate starting point than the more commonly used models. Please click on the links above to download the paper and the calculator. If you have questions after reading the white paper or using the calculator, please call our engineers at 216- 383-4046.
