SABR - bearing load export

SABR - bearing load export

Casing stiffness and bearing load export

SABR can import a casing stiffness matrix to take into account the flexure of the casing and cross coupling of forces between bearings.

SABR can export bearing loads for further finite element analysis of casings or complex shafts. The export can include various levels of detail from 5 degree of freedom forces at a single bearing point to distributed loads on bearing raceways. These can be imported directly into FEARCE or Abaqus.

Key features

  • Casing stiffness matrix import
  • Bearing force export for finite element analysis
  • Force vector export mapped onto automatically generated mesh of bearing outer race – visualisation in FEARCE
