ABMA Expands Bearing Knowledge at Advanced Concepts Course

ABMA’s Advanced Concepts of Bearing Technology course was held June 18-21 at the R. David Thomas Executive Conference Center at Duke University in Durham, NC. The course focused on taking attendee’s bearing knowledge to the next level by concentrating on the following complex topics:

ABMA course

• Bearing Macrogeometry: Clearance, Free Contact Angle, Interference Fits
• Ball/Roller Loading: Static/Inertial
• Contact Stresses, Deflection, & Subsurface Stresses
• Internal Load Distribution – Speed & Motion
• Concepts of Friction & Wear: Surface Topography
• Fundamentals of Fatigue Life Theory
• Contact Friction
• Bearing Friction & Reference Speeds
• Permanent Deformations & Static Capacity
• Fatigue Life Prediction: Standards & Advanced Calculations
• Testing Methods & Statistical Analysis
• Lubricants & Rheology & EHL
• Shaft-Bearing Systems & Performance Analysis

The course was led by industry experts Daniel Snyder, Michael Hoeprich and Timothy Ovaert. With a focus on situational learning, the instructors provided the attendees with insight into the business world by using examples that reinforce technology and calculation methods to predict performance.

“The instructors were very knowledgeable and continuously used good examples to reinforce the material.” – 2012 Advanced Course Attendee

Located on Duke University’s West Campus, the state-of-the-art conference center was only a short distance to downtown Durham where attendees were able to enjoy the nationally acclaimed restaurants, shopping and historical sites. Additionally, all of the attendees had a unique opportunity to tour the renowned Cameron Indoor Stadium as well as Duke’s basketball museum and sports hall of fame.

ABMA’s next course will be the Essential Concepts of Bearing Technology which will be held September 18-20, 2012 at the IUPUI Conference Center in Indianapolis, IN. This course focuses on understanding basic tribology, bearing types and applications and explores the basic concepts around manufacturing methods, loads, lubrication and failure. This course is specially designed for engineers and others with technical backgrounds that have limited exposure to bearings and need to adapt their technical training to bearings or seek an upgrade to their technical knowledge.
