The article "Analysis of Load Distribution in Planet Gear Bearings" appeared in the September 2011 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
In epicyclic gear sets designed for aeronautical applications, planet gears are generally supported by spherical roller bearings with the bearing outer race integral to the gear hub. This article presents a new method to compute roller load distribution in such bearings where the outer ring canít be considered rigid.
