twin plane are identical. Twinning occurs
either as mechanical twinning or Annealing
Sol. • A long bearing is where   d ( = length d
twins during annealing heat treatment.
= diameter) Twinning increases strength & reduces
A shaft bearing has advantages such as (i) ductility as twin planes hinders the movement
shaft deflection and misalignment do not of dislocations.
affect operation (ii) compact design (iii) Run 120. If the equivalent load in case of a radial ball
cooler. However, end leakage is a problem. bearing is 500 N and the basic dynamic load
On the other hand, long bearings have rating is 62500 N, then L10 life of this bearing
greater load carrying capacity and end
