Wheel bearings for cars and trucks continue to receive the interest and study of vehicle designers and builders. Bearings must maintain their historic reliability in the face of changing design requirements and environmental conditions.
Designers are under pressure to reduce unsprung weights and component costs. The basic considerations for wheel bearing performance are reviewed and new approaches for design, calculation and standardization are introduced.
The fatigue life of the bearings is the first consideration. Bearing setting, lubrication, and mounting practices are other key factors in a successful wheel bearing mounting.
