Course Description

105-Automotive Bearing Technology

This course deals with the application of anti-friction bearings in automotive vehicles. It contains pertinent text along with and an ample number of illustrative sketches to provide the student with an easy grasp of the subject matter. It explains the use of bearings in manual and automatic transmissions. It has an in depth discussion of vehicle wheel bearings. Wheel bearings are considered safety items by the auto manufacturers and their design and manufacture is of vital importance to passenger well being. There is a discussion regarding the new "Integral Spindle Wheel Bearing" which was designed and mass-produced by one of the major U.S. car companies. Integral spindle wheel bearings are incorporated in the new front-drive light weight passenger cars and are considered a major engineering and manufacturing break through. Finally, there is information presented on the special design aspects of engine coolant pump bearings and an explanation of the operation of the drive axle differential system. The bulk of the mathematical equations for this course are contained at the end in the form of Appendix pages for reader convenience.

Lots of basic information. Would like to see a more in-depth treatment of bearing design integrated with gear design, especially planetary gear systems. Most test questions were very simple.

Material was not put together well with large gaps in the middle of pages. The exam was also pretty lightweight.

Good overview with some grammatical errors. One diagram is difficult to see, it's very blurry causing me to miss a test question.
