Abstract

Skidding, which frequently occurs in high-speed rolling bearings, has a significant effect on the thermal distribution and service reliability of the bearings. An improved theoretical model of friction power loss distribution in high-speed and light-load rolling bearings (HSLLRBs) considering skidding is established, and the effects of various operating parameters on the friction power loss are investigated. The results show that the friction power loss of the inner ring and outer ring as well as the total friction power loss of the bearing increase as the slip ratio increases, but that the friction power loss of the cage guide surface and roller oil churning show a reverse trend. In addition, the increase in inner ring speed and kinematic viscosity leads to an increase in bearing friction power loss. The steady and transient temperature field distribution of HSLLRBs is obtained by the finite element method (FEM), and the results show that the inner ring raceway has the highest temperature, whereas the cage has the lowest. The temperature distribution test rig of a full-size roller bearing is constructed, and the influence mechanism of the slip ratio, rotation speed, load, lubrication, and surface topography on the bearing temperature distribution are obtained. The experimental results are consistent with the theoretical results, which also validates the theoretical method. View Full-Text
