Thrust load transmission at the contact areas of roller ends and flanges occurs under conditions of pure sliding. Recent theoretical and experimental investigations showed that with adequately designed roller ends and flanges and with a satisfactory lubricant high thrust loads can be accommodated over a wide speed range with fully hydrodynamic lubrication. The conventional methods used for the determination of the safe thrust load should be revised and supplemented. Oil viscosity should be introduced as an important parameter. Contrary to present opinion the hydrodynamic load-carrying capacity at the flange increases with increasing speed. This new knowledge broadens the application range of radial cylindrical roller bearings.
