Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

Introduction
0.1 ISO/R 76:1958

ISO/R 76, Ball and Roller Bearings — Methods of Evaluating Static Load Ratings, was drawn up by

Technical Committee ISO/TC 4, Ball and Roller Bearings.
[2],[3]

ISO/R 76 was based on the studies of A. Palmgren et al . The basic static load ratings were defined

to correspond to a total permanent deformation of rolling element and raceway at the most heavily

stressed rolling element/raceway contact of 0,000 1 of the rolling element diameter. Then the standard

values confined to the basic static load ratings for special inner design rolling bearings were laid down.

ISO/R 76:1958 was approved by 28 (out of a total of 38) member bodies and was then submitted to the

ISO Council, which decided, in December 1958, to accept it as an ISO Recommendation.

0.2 ISO 76:1978

ISO/TC 4 decided to include the revision of ISO/R 76 in its programme of work and ISO/TC 4/SC 8

secretariat was requested to prepare a draft proposal. As a result, the secretariat submitted a draft

[3]
proposal in January 1976.

The draft proposal was accepted by 6 of the 8 members of ISO/TC 4/SC 8. Of the remaining two, Japan

[4]

preferred further study and USA, its counter proposal, document ISO/TC 4/SC 8 N 64 . The draft was

then submitted to the ISO Central Secretariat. After the draft had been approved by the ISO member

bodies, the ISO Council decided in June 1978 to accept it as an International Standard.

ISO 76:1978 adopted the SI unit newton and was revised in total, but without essential changes of

substance. However, values of X and Y for the nominal contact angles 15° and 45° for angular contact

0 0

groove ball bearings were added to the table to calculate the static equivalent radial loads of radial ball

bearings (see ISO 76:1978, Table 2).
0.3 ISO 76:1987
[4]

During the revision of ISO/R 76:1958, USA had in 1975 submitted a counter proposal for the basic

static load ratings based on a calculated contact stress.

The secretariat requested a vote on the revision of the static load ratings based on a contact stress level

in January 1978 and afterward circulated the voted results in June 1978, and the item No. of revision

work had become No. 157 of the programme of work of TC 4.
[5] [6]

ISO/TC 4/SC 8, considering the proposals made in the documents TC 4/SC 8 N 75 and TC 4 N 865 ,

as well as the comments made by TC 4 members and that several SC 8 members expressed a need

for updating ISO 76, agreed to continue its study taking into account the possibility of using either

permanent deformation or stress level as a basis for static load ratings, and ISO/TC 4/SC 8 requested

its secretariat to prepare a new draft. The new draft was intended to be prepared with the principles

and formulae of the document TC 4/SC 8 N 75, and to include levels of contact stress for various rolling

element contact stated to be generally corresponding to a permanent deformation of 0,000 1 of the

rolling element diameter at the centre of the most heavily stressed rolling element/raceway contact.

For roller bearings a stress level of 4 000 MPa was agreed and then ISO/TC 4/SC 8 agreed, by a majority

vote, that static load ratings should correspond to calculated contact stresses of

4 000 MPa for roller bearings,
4 600 MPa for self-aligning ball bearings, and
4 200 MPa for all other ball bearings to which the standard applies.

For these calculated contact stresses, a total permanent deformation occurs at the centre of the most

heavily stressed rolling element/raceway contact, and its deformation is approximately 0,000 1 of the

rolling element diameter.

ISO/TR 10657:2021(E)

ISO 76 was submitted to the ISO Central Secretariat in 1985, and after it had been approved by the

ISO members, the ISO Council decided in February 1987 to accept it as an International Standard.

Furthermore, ISO/TC 4/SC 8 decided that supplementary background information, regarding the

derivation of formulae and factors given in ISO 76, should be published as a Technical Report. This

Technical report was published as ISO/TR 10657:1991.

An Amendment to ISO 76:1987 that explains the discontinuities in load ratings between radial- and

axial bearings was published as ISO 76:1987/Amd.1:1999.
0.4 ISO 76:2006

A systematic review of ISO 76:1987 was agreed in 2003, based on the prior held balloting process and

documents TC 4/SC 8 N 233 and N 235.

ISO 76:2006 includes editorial adaptations and updates as well as an extension by the static safety

factor S . Furthermore, ISO 76:1987/Amd.1:1999 was integrated and became the informative Annex A

“Discontinuities in the calculation of basic static load ratings”.
0.5 ISO 76:2006/Amd.1:2017
ISO 76:2006/Amd.1:2017 includes the following items:

— graphs for the factors f , X and Y taken from draft ÖNORM M 6320 to be included in an informative

0 0 0
annex;

— formulae for the calculation of the load rating factor f from ISO/TR 10657 to be introduced in the

normative part of the standard;

— the tables for the load rating factor f will stay in the normative part of the standard, however a

sentence will be introduced stating that the results obtained from formulae are preferred.

The values of factor f in Table 1 of ISO 76:2006 are calculated from substituting the values for κ, E(κ)

and γ = D cos α/D shown in Table A.1, and σ = 4 200 MPa into the above formula.
w pw max

These values apply to bearings with a cross-sectional raceway groove radius not larger than 0,52 D in

radial and angular contact groove ball bearing inner rings, and 0,53 D in radial and angular contact

groove ball bearing outer rings and self-aligning ball bearing inner rings

The load-carrying ability of a bearing is not necessarily increased by the use of a smaller groove radius,

but is reduced by the use of a larger groove radius. In the latter case, a correspondingly reduced value

of f is used.

Introduction
0.1 ISO/R 76:1958

ISO/R 76, Ball and Roller Bearings — Methods of Evaluating Static Load Ratings, was drawn up by

Technical Committee ISO/TC 4, Ball and Roller Bearings.
[2],[3]

ISO/R 76 was based on the studies of A. Palmgren et al . The basic static load ratings were defined

to correspond to a total permanent deformation of rolling element and raceway at the most heavily

stressed rolling element/raceway contact of 0,000 1 of the rolling element diameter. Then the standard

values confined to the basic static load ratings for special inner design rolling bearings were laid down.

ISO/R 76:1958 was approved by 28 (out of a total of 38) member bodies and was then submitted to the

ISO Council, which decided, in December 1958, to accept it as an ISO Recommendation.

0.2 ISO 76:1978

ISO/TC 4 decided to include the revision of ISO/R 76 in its programme of work and ISO/TC 4/SC 8

secretariat was requested to prepare a draft proposal. As a result, the secretariat submitted a draft

[3]
proposal in January 1976.

The draft proposal was accepted by 6 of the 8 members of ISO/TC 4/SC 8. Of the remaining two, Japan

[4]

preferred further study and USA, its counter proposal, document ISO/TC 4/SC 8 N 64 . The draft was

then submitted to the ISO Central Secretariat. After the draft had been approved by the ISO member

bodies, the ISO Council decided in June 1978 to accept it as an International Standard.

ISO 76:1978 adopted the SI unit newton and was revised in total, but without essential changes of

substance. However, values of X and Y for the nominal contact angles 15° and 45° for angular contact

0 0

groove ball bearings were added to the table to calculate the static equivalent radial loads of radial ball

bearings (see ISO 76:1978, Table 2).
0.3 ISO 76:1987
[4]

During the revision of ISO/R 76:1958, USA had in 1975 submitted a counter proposal for the basic

static load ratings based on a calculated contact stress.

The secretariat requested a vote on the revision of the static load ratings based on a contact stress level

in January 1978 and afterward circulated the voted results in June 1978, and the item No. of revision

work had become No. 157 of the programme of work of TC 4.
[5] [6]

ISO/TC 4/SC 8, considering the proposals made in the documents TC 4/SC 8 N 75 and TC 4 N 865 ,

as well as the comments made by TC 4 members and that several SC 8 members expressed a need

for updating ISO 76, agreed to continue its study taking into account the possibility of using either

permanent deformation or stress level as a basis for static load ratings, and ISO/TC 4/SC 8 requested

its secretariat to prepare a new draft. The new draft was intended to be prepared with the principles

and formulae of the document TC 4/SC 8 N 75, and to include levels of contact stress for various rolling

element contact stated to be generally corresponding to a permanent deformation of 0,000 1 of the

rolling element diameter at the centre of the most heavily stressed rolling element/raceway contact.

For roller bearings a stress level of 4 000 MPa was agreed and then ISO/TC 4/SC 8 agreed, by a majority

vote, that static load ratings should correspond to calculated contact stresses of

4 000 MPa for roller bearings,
4 600 MPa for self-aligning ball bearings, and
4 200 MPa for all other ball bearings to which the standard applies.

For these calculated contact stresses, a total permanent deformation occurs at the centre of the most

heavily stressed rolling element/raceway contact, and its deformation is approximately 0,000 1 of the

rolling element diameter.

ISO/TR 10657:2021(E)

ISO 76 was submitted to the ISO Central Secretariat in 1985, and after it had been approved by the

ISO members, the ISO Council decided in February 1987 to accept it as an International Standard.

Furthermore, ISO/TC 4/SC 8 decided that supplementary background information, regarding the

derivation of formulae and factors given in ISO 76, should be published as a Technical Report. This

Technical report was published as ISO/TR 10657:1991.

An Amendment to ISO 76:1987 that explains the discontinuities in load ratings between radial- and

axial bearings was published as ISO 76:1987/Amd.1:1999.
0.4 ISO 76:2006

A systematic review of ISO 76:1987 was agreed in 2003, based on the prior held balloting process and

documents TC 4/SC 8 N 233 and N 235.

ISO 76:2006 includes editorial adaptations and updates as well as an extension by the static safety

factor S . Furthermore, ISO 76:1987/Amd.1:1999 was integrated and became the informative Annex A

“Discontinuities in the calculation of basic static load ratings”.
0.5 ISO 76:2006/Amd.1:2017
ISO 76:2006/Amd.1:2017 includes the following items:

— graphs for the factors f , X and Y taken from draft ÖNORM M 6320 to be included in an informative

0 0 0
annex;

— formulae for the calculation of the load rating factor f from ISO/TR 10657 to be introduced in the

normative part of the standard;

— the tables for the load rating factor f will stay in the normative part of the standard, however a

sentence will be introduced stating that the results obtained from formulae are preferred.

and γ = D cos α/D shown in Table A.1, and σ = 4 200 MPa into the above formula.

These values apply to bearings with a cross-sectional raceway groove radius not larger than 0,52 D in

radial and angular contact groove ball bearing inner rings, and 0,53 D in radial and angular contact

groove ball bearing outer rings and self-aligning ball bearing inner rings

The load-carrying ability of a bearing is not necessarily increased by the use of a smaller groove radius,

but is reduced by the use of a larger groove radius. In the latter case, a correspondingly reduced value

of f is used.

Introduction
0.1 ISO/R 76:1958

ISO/R 76, Ball and Roller Bearings — Methods of Evaluating Static Load Ratings, was drawn up by

Technical Committee ISO/TC 4, Ball and Roller Bearings.
[2],[3]

ISO/R 76 was based on the studies of A. Palmgren et al . The basic static load ratings were defined

to correspond to a total permanent deformation of rolling element and raceway at the most heavily

stressed rolling element/raceway contact of 0,000 1 of the rolling element diameter. Then the standard

values confined to the basic static load ratings for special inner design rolling bearings were laid down.

ISO/R 76:1958 was approved by 28 (out of a total of 38) member bodies and was then submitted to the

ISO Council, which decided, in December 1958, to accept it as an ISO Recommendation.

0.2 ISO 76:1978

ISO/TC 4 decided to include the revision of ISO/R 76 in its programme of work and ISO/TC 4/SC 8

secretariat was requested to prepare a draft proposal. As a result, the secretariat submitted a draft

[3]
proposal in January 1976.

The draft proposal was accepted by 6 of the 8 members of ISO/TC 4/SC 8. Of the remaining two, Japan

[4]

preferred further study and USA, its counter proposal, document ISO/TC 4/SC 8 N 64 . The draft was

then submitted to the ISO Central Secretariat. After the draft had been approved by the ISO member

bodies, the ISO Council decided in June 1978 to accept it as an International Standard.

ISO 76:1978 adopted the SI unit newton and was revised in total, but without essential changes of

substance. However, values of X and Y for the nominal contact angles 15° and 45° for angular contact

0 0

groove ball bearings were added to the table to calculate the static equivalent radial loads of radial ball

bearings (see ISO 76:1978, Table 2).
0.3 ISO 76:1987
[4]

During the revision of ISO/R 76:1958, USA had in 1975 submitted a counter proposal for the basic

static load ratings based on a calculated contact stress.

The secretariat requested a vote on the revision of the static load ratings based on a contact stress level

in January 1978 and afterward circulated the voted results in June 1978, and the item No. of revision

work had become No. 157 of the programme of work of TC 4.
[5] [6]

ISO/TC 4/SC 8, considering the proposals made in the documents TC 4/SC 8 N 75 and TC 4 N 865 ,

as well as the comments made by TC 4 members and that several SC 8 members expressed a need

for updating ISO 76, agreed to continue its study taking into account the possibility of using either

permanent deformation or stress level as a basis for static load ratings, and ISO/TC 4/SC 8 requested

its secretariat to prepare a new draft. The new draft was intended to be prepared with the principles

and formulae of the document TC 4/SC 8 N 75, and to include levels of contact stress for various rolling

element contact stated to be generally corresponding to a permanent deformation of 0,000 1 of the

rolling element diameter at the centre of the most heavily stressed rolling element/raceway contact.

For roller bearings a stress level of 4 000 MPa was agreed and then ISO/TC 4/SC 8 agreed, by a majority

vote, that static load ratings should correspond to calculated contact stresses of

4 000 MPa for roller bearings,
4 600 MPa for self-aligning ball bearings and
4 200 MPa for all other ball bearings to which the standard applies.

For these calculated contact stresses, a total permanent deformation occurs at the centre of the most

heavily stressed rolling element/raceway contact, and its deformation is approximately 0,000 1 of the

rolling element diameter.

ISO/TR 10657:2021(E)

ISO 76 was submitted to the ISO Central Secretariat in 1985, and after it had been approved by the

ISO members, the ISO Council decided in February 1987 to accept it as an International Standard.

Furthermore, ISO/TC 4/SC 8 decided that supplementary background information, regarding the

derivation of formulae and factors given in ISO 76, should be published as a Technical Report. This

Technical report was published as ISO/TR 10657:1991.

An Amendment to ISO 76:1987 that explains the discontinuities in load ratings between radial- and

axial bearings was published as ISO 76:1987/Amd.1:1999.
0.4 ISO 76:2006

A systematic review of ISO 76:1987 was agreed in 2003, based on the prior held balloting process and

documents TC 4/SC 8 N 233 and N 235.

ISO 76:2006 includes editorial adaptations and updates as well as an extension by the static safety

factor S . Furthermore, ISO 76:1987/Amd.1:1999 was integrated and became the informative Annex A

“Discontinuities in the calculation of basic static load ratings”.
0.5 ISO 76:2006/Amd.1:2017
ISO 76:2006/Amd.1:2017 includes the following items:

— graphs for the factors f , X and Y taken from draft ÖNORM M 6320 to be included in an informative

0 0 0
annex;

— formulae for the calculation of the load rating factor f from ISO/TR 10657 to be introduced in the

normative part of the standard;

— the tables for the load rating factor f will stay in the normative part of the standard, however a

sentence will be introduced stating that the results obtained from formulae are preferred.

The smaller value between the f values calculated from Formula (19) and Formula (20) is used in the

calculation of static load ratings.

The values of factor f in Table 1 of ISO 76:2006 are calculated from substituting the values for κ, E(κ)

and γ = D cos α/D shown in Table A.1, and σ = 4 200 MPa into the above formula.

These values apply to bearings with a cross-sectional raceway groove radius not larger than 0,52 D in

radial and angular contact groove ball bearing inner rings, and 0,53 D in radial and angular contact

groove ball bearing outer rings and self-aligning ball bearing inner rings

The load-carrying ability of a bearing is not necessarily increased by the use of a smaller groove radius,

but is reduced by the use of a larger groove radius. In the latter case, a correspondingly reduced value

of f is used.
