Abstract

All deep‐groove ball bearings have similar features in geometry, mechanism, and structure. Stiffness of this type of bearings is related to geometry, dimensions, and operating conditions by a very complex, high‐order and coupled‐variable function. This paper has verified that the stiffness function for all deep‐groove ball bearings can be replaced by a back‐propagation neural network (BPNN) which is trained by using some (not all) samples.
