Hybrid bearings technologies


The focus of the CfP is the development of hybrid tapered bearings (Si3N4 tapered rollers having steel inner and outer races) for aerospace application.
The main areas of analyses will be:
• the comparison of all steel vs. ceramic bearings in clean and contaminated conditions (through subscale and full scale testing)
• the investigation on allowable contact limits
