In this paper, the radial and axial vibrations of a rigid shaft supported by a pair of angular contact ball bearings is studied. The effect of bearing running surface waviness on the vibration of the shaft is investigated. A computer program was developed to simulate inner race, outer race, and rolling surface waviness with the results presented in time and frequency domains. Results obtained from the similation programme are quantatively in good aggrement with various authors’ experimental researches.
