  • Abstract

    The theoretical model with 2 degree-of-freedom system is developed for predicting the vibration response and analyze frequency properties in an extended type defective ball bearing. In the mathematical formulation, the contact between the races and rolling element considered as non-linear springs. The contact forces produced during the collaboration of rolling elements are obtained by utilizing Hertzian contact deformation hypothesis. The second order nonlinear differential equation of motion is solved using a state space variable method with the help of MATLAB software and the vibration acceleration response of the defective ball bearing presented in the frequency spectrum. The effects of variation in speed and size of the defect on characteristic frequency of extended fault on the outer raceway of the ball bearing have been investigated. The theoretical results of the healthy (non defective) and defective bearing are compared with each other.
