Business Failure: The Bearing Industry - ... To calculate cost of equity, we choose to use long term Treasury bond 4.97% as risk free rate. According to the historical data, we assume 10% is approximate long-run market average return. We get 5% as market risk premium by deducting risk free rate from the 10% market average. The beta of the firm is 1.1. Using the CAPM, we estimate the cost of equity equal to 10.47%. The capital structure of Timken is 30% debt and 70% equity.

Vivian Bearing: Shakespearean Heroine - Shakespeare´s definition of a tragic hero stands between the epic hero and the scondrel: he is an exceptional being though not completely noble; he has a flaw of character which contributes to his degeneration and eventually leads to his downfall, that is to say death: be it physical or moral, preceded by transfiguration. This redemption serves the purpose of restoring heroic qualities and takes place just before the hero´s demise, in recognition of his flaw.

Magnetic Bearings and Heat - One of the main problems associated with the design and application of active magnetic bearings is excessive heat. Heat is generated by two primary mechanisms. The first heating source comes from eddy current loss. Eddy currents are electric currents driven within conductors by a dynamic magnetic field located in the conductor. Eddy current loss in a magnetic bearing are caused by the rate of change in the magnetic field. The relative motion creates a rotating flow of current inside the conductor, which leads to efficiency loss....   [tags: electric current, lubrication] 1884 words

Manufacturing Principles Case Study Report Bearings - Introduction There is a market need for a device that allows constrained relative motion between two or more parts in a rotational or linear sense without causing excessive wear. The bearing is intended to fulfill this need by providing a smooth surface and mechanism that allows a shaft or component to move independently without causing damage in the form of wear to its support. Bearings themselves can be classified in terms of the motions that they allow, the particular principle of operation that they implement and the direction of applied loads that they are capable of handling....   [tags: Physics ]

Ball Bearings - The object of ball bearings (and roller bearings) is the substitution of pure rolling motion for plain sliding friction. Ball Bearings rely on the rolling motion of hardened steel balls to absorb loads. This rolling motion produces far less friction than the sliding motion. These steel balls are held in circular rows between an outer and inner ring, which have raceways, or slots, grooved into them to guide the balls. Ball bearings are available in both filling-slot and no filling-slot types. Other types of bearings have developed from these basic designs, like double-row and deep groove bearings, to handle specific application....   [tags: essays research papers] 416 words

Rolling Element Bearings In Electric Motors - Rolling-element bearings in electric motors support and locate the rotor, maintain a small and consistent air gap between the rotor and stator, and transfer loads from the shaft to the motor frame. The correct bearings for an application let a motor run efficiently across its design speed range, minimize friction and power loss, produce little noise, and have a long service life. On the other hand, bearings can be quickly ruined when a motor is used improperly. For example, the deep-groove ball bearings optimized for in-line couplers can overload if motors fitted with them drive a belt pulley....   [tags: Technical Auto Motor Process] 1319 words

Components, Wear, and Rebuild of an Internal Combustion Engine - In order for the motor to function, it must have air and fuel. The valve train is the system that provides this. It is composed of the camshaft, lifters, pushrods, valve springs, rocker arms, and valves (Brain). The main piece of the valve train is the camshaft. Not to be confused with the crankshaft, the camshaft rotates to lift the lifters, pushrods, and ultimately, the valves. Rotation is transferred from the crankshaft to the camshaft via the timing chain. Along with making the camshaft rotate, the timing assembly also does as its name suggests by keeping the crank and cam in time....   [tags: mechanical engineering]
