Some characteristics are presented for taper-roller bearings with a clearance fit. The stiffness and damping in the joints between raceways and housing/shaft are shown to be significant. The other major parameters investigated are preload, temperature, lubricant viscosity, excitation frequency, excitation amplitude, and rotational speed. The relevance of the measured characteristics to the design of spindles with high dynamic stiffness is discussed. Also the significance of radial and tilt characteristics is compared.
