Abstract

The rolling bearings are frequently applied elements of the mechanical structures. During finite element modeling of rolling bearing supported structures to define the adequate accuracy of bearing rigidity behavior enlarge immensely the FE model size and the related calculation time. So it is an understandable effort to use simplified substituting model for rolling bearing which carries the bearing rigidity character and does not make an unnecessary complicated structural model. In this paper the authors present a substituting technique for needle roller bearing.
