PREFACE FEW subjects related to the design or construction of
machinery are of greater importance than the subject of bearings.
All classes of mechanisms have bearings of some kind and bearings
that are properly designed and constructed are a necessity. As
every experienced mechanic knows, a poor bearing may tie up a
machine or even cause an entire plant to shut down temporarily.
Owing to the importance of this subject, designers and mechanics in
general should understand the fundamental principIes governing
bearing design and should know what approved types are in common
use on different classes of machinery. This treatise deals
exclusively with plain bearings, ball and roIler bearings being
covered in another book of this series. The types of plain bearings
ilIustrated in a connection with the following chapters were
selected to show how designs are modified to suit different
conditions, and also practical methods of arranging bearings to
insure adequate lubrication and thorough protection against the
entrance of any foreign material liable to injure the bearing
surfaces. The designs illustrated were taken from actual practice
and have proved satisfactory when properly constructed and applied.
This treatise contains, in addition to the features mentioned,
condensed information on corn- positions of various bearing metals,
their properties, the classes of service to which different bearing
alIoys are adapted, and the general methods of procedure in
designing plain bearings to meet different service conditions...
