An integral shaft bearing is popular for higher specific load carrying capacity, preventing misalignment defects and eliminating the risk of undesirable distortion of the bearings, rather than conventional one. Integral shaft bearing is used to reduce rotational friction and support radial and axial loads friction in bearings which cause an increase of the temperature and Stresses inside the bearing. If the heat produced cannot be adequately removed from the bearing, the temperature might exceed a certain limit, and as a result the bearing would fail. To analyze the heat flow, temperature distribution and stresses in a bearing system, a typical integral shaft bearing and its environment has been modeled and analyzed using the famous finite element tool ANSYS. In this study we investigate structural and thermal characteristics performance of integral shaft bearing to Analyze temperature distribution and thermal elongation due to friction also its effect on bearing clearances and vice-versa.
