PLANISHING

Smoothing the surface of a metal by a rapid series of overlapping, light hammerlike blows or by rolling in a planishing mill.

NONHOLONOMICSYSTEM

Asystemofparticles which is subjected to constraints of such a nature that the system cannot be described by independent coordinates; examples are a rolling hoop, or an ice skate which must point along its path.

BALL BEARING

An anti-friction rolling type bearing containing rolling elements in the form of balls.

ANTI-FRICTION BEARING

A rolling contact type bearing in which the rotating or moving member is supported or guided by means of ball or roller elements. Does not mean without friction.

ASPERITIES

microscopic projections on metal surfaces resulting from normal surface-finishing processes. Interference between opposing asperities in sliding or rolling applications is a source of friction, and can lead to metal welding and scoring. Ideally, the lubricating film between two moving surfaces should be thicker than the combined height of the opposing asperities.

LAMINAR PARTICLES

Particles generated in rolling element bearings which have been flattened out by a rolling contact.

ANNULAR BEARING

Usually a rolling bearing of short cylindrical form supporting a shaft carrying a radial load.

NEEDLE BEARING

A rolling type of bearing containing rolling elements that are relatively long compared to their diameter.

PITCHPOLE

To capsize a boat stern over bow, rather than by rolling over.

SHIFTING CARGO

Transverse movement of cargo, especially bulk, caused by rolling or a heavy list
