Keywords:three-row roller slewing bearing, carrying capacity, load distribution, stress distribution, new finite element model
Three-row roller slewing bearings are one of the critical core components of large rotating equipment. Heavy-duty conditions have extremely high requirements for the carrying capacity. The new load capacity analysis method proposed in this paper can effectively improve the accuracy and efficiency of the carrying capacity analysis of three-row roller slewing bearings. The three-row roller slewing bearing solid rollers are replaced in the model by the upper and lower halves of the rollers and two springs. The local contact model of the three-row roller slewing bearing was established and verified by the Hertz contact theory. The overall finite element model of the three-row roller slewing bearing was verified by strain tests. The new method can calculate the stress and strain distribution, load distribution, and deformation of the entire circle of the three-row roller slewing bearing and reduce the mesh number of the finite element of the overall model. Roller chamfer can also be considered closer to the actual working conditions and improves calculation efficiency and accuracy.
