  3. Contact Stress Design Parameters for Titanium Bearings

    SBC: AIR-LOCK, INCORPORATED            Topic: H402

    Air-Lock's Phase I effort tested the effects of ball induced contact stresses on Titanium bearing races. The contact stress design limit that would achieve a planetary exploration suit?s required cycle life was determined. These tests were performed on uniformly loaded flat thrust bearing style test plates. The Phase II effort will take this information and use it in a real world application, exi ...
