Ball Bearing Design Tool Evaluation
Abstract: This report has been written during my internship/master thesis at Thales Alenia Space, Cannes, FRANCE. The subject of the thesis is ball bearing design, and is focused on the software RBSDyn. This software has been developed by CNES, the French Center for Space Studies, and is used to simulate bearings behaviors under various conditions. My mission was to verify, test and implement this software for the company. In order to do so, the first step was to understand the bearing theory, which is the first part of this report. The second step was to use the software and verify its results, which is presented in the second section. Eventually, the final goal of this internship was to create a sequence to help Thales Alenia Space engineers to design and select bearings, using this software and an Excel tool that needed to be created. Note that for confidentiality reasons, the values and names used for internal TAS mechanisms have been removed of this document.
