Ball bearing selection

  1. Mar 6, 2015 #1
    Hello there guys

    I'm trying to find out which ball bearings I have to use for a new wheel hub I am designing. What I'm currently doing is a load analysis for the axis but I am confused on how would the forces that affect the wheel (normal, friction, lateral force when the car takes a turn, etc) come into play into this analysis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to PF.

    Your question is quite general so you should first google the subject. Read things like this;

    Please post a drawing of your present design. We can then get some idea of the stage of your design and suggest things you may need to consider.
