A Model for the Determination of the Resisting Torque of the Rolling Bearing Cage Motion of Slow-Speed Kinematic Pairs



A simplified, plane model for determination of resisting torques of the rolling bearing cage motion of low speed kinematic pairs is presented. The considerations are devoted to an arbitrary character of the point contact of a rolling element–cage pairs lying in a plane which is crossing the rolling elements in their geometrical centre. The model has been developed on the basis of the analysis of motion kinematics of a bearing track and rolling elements. The proposed algorithm allows for continuous tracking the resisting torque of the cage and its components during the kinematic pair motion.
