In this paper, a simplified approach in the analysis of the varying compliance vibrations of a rolling bearing is presented. This approach analyses the generation of vibrations in relation to two boundary positions of the inner ring support on an even and an odd number of the rolling element of a bearing. In this paper, a mathematical model for the calculation of amplitude and frequency of vibrations of a rigid rotor in a rolling bearing is presented. The model is characterized by a big

Based on the presented mathematical model a parametric analysis of the influence of the internal radial clearance, external radial load and the total number of rolling elements on the varying compliance vibrations of rolling bearing was conducted. These parameters are the most influential factors for generating varying compliance vibrations. The results of the parametric analysis demonstrate that with the proper choice of the size of the internal radial clearance and external radial load, the level of the varying compliance vibrations in a rolling bearing can be theoretically reduced to zero. This result opposes the opinion that varying compliance vibrations of rolling bearing cannot be avoided, even for geometrically ideally produced bearing.
