A bearing is a component that is used in machines to support rotating shafts with a minimum of friction. There are two types of bearings: rolling contact bearings and journal bearings. Rolling contact bearings use balls or rollers that rotate between inner and outer rings to allow shaft rotation. Journal bearings are one-piece static sleeves that mount in housings and fit closely to shafts to allow rotational movement. Both have many applications in today's industrial products. For instance, in the automotive industry, rolling contact bearings are used in transmissions while journal bearings are used in engines.

This course deals with rolling contact bearings. It teaches all their important aspects from the basics to machine applications. The course is written in easy to understand terms with the intent of giving the student important information on the application of ball and roller bearings in mechanical equipment. This course is for Mechanical Engineers, Automotive Engineers, Design Engineers, Civil Engineers and any other discipline interested in rolling contact bearings, machine design, or mechanical power transmission.
