Mechanical engineering seminar on magnetic bearing ebook download pdf
The use of bearings is essential to all types of machines, in that they provide the function of supporting another piece or component in a desired position. Two major types include radial and axial bearings. Furthermore, bearings are usually implied to be supporting a rotating object or shaft, which is addressed in this paper, but that is not always the case. The other situation would be one of translational sliding, which is merely a linear case of supporting a rotating object.
