Abstract

Roller skew in roller bearings can cause heat generation and reduce bearing life. Therefore, design to minimise its occurrence is essential in bearing development. This study investigated the roller skew of a double row tapered roller bearing under various running conditions. A new system of measurement using two differential variable reluctance transducers (DVRT) was developed. It is evident that the roller skew of the double row tapered roller bearing can be measured. The shaft rotational speed has a significant effect on roller skew but the radial load has little effect.
