Sliding Velocity v

The sliding velocity for bushings and thrust washers results in:

vsliding velocity, m/s
dbore diameter of bushing, mm
Jmiddle diameter of thrust washer, mm
(Find dimension J in the product tables: [GLYCODUR® F] or [GLYCODUR® A])
fangular frequency or rotational frequency, min-1
ßhalf turning angle in degrees (see  - Drawing Turning Angle) 90° in case of rotational movement

 – Drawing Turning Angle

A complete oscillation = : way from point 0 to 4

Sliding velocity factor c2

Increasing sliding velocity will lead to increased heat generation in the sliding surface; the wear rate increases. Therefore, the velocity factor c2 has to be considered when designing the bearing.
