**Definitions and objectives

• The role of a bearing is to provide relative positioning and rotational freedom while transmitting a load between a shaft and a housing. There are two general types of bearings:

• Rolling-contact bearings (anti-friction bearings, rolling bearings). In the rolling-contact bearings the load is transmitted by rolling rather than by sliding. Journal Bearings (plain bearings, bushings, sleeve bearings). In journal bearings, the load is transmitted by sliding and the problem of this class of bearings is essentially a lubrication
