Title Evaluation of low friction bearings under simulated hanger loads : stage 1 - PART 2
Publisher Wimpey Laboratories Limited, 1986
Physical Description 41 leaves

Abstract: It has been suggested that bending fatigue in suspension bridge hangers could be prevented by introducing effective low friction bearings at the hanger sockets. The performance requirements for such bearings have been established. A wide ranging review of bearing types, bearing materials and lubricants with the potential to perform satisfactorily in this application has been carried out.
