Language in which you want to receive the document


This part of EN 1337 specifies the requirements for the design and manufacture of pot bearings which will be used for operating temperatures between - 40 °C and 50 °C.
This part of EN 1337 does not apply to pot bearings made with other materials than those specified in clause 5.
Bearings which are subjected to rotation ad greater than 0,030 rad (see Figure 2) under the characteristic combination of actions or which incorporate elastomeric pads larger than 1500 mm in diameter are beyond the scope of this document.
Depending on the climatic region where the construction work is located the bearings can be designed to one of the following classes related to minimum operating temperatures (the minimum shade air temperatures): - 25 °C or - 40 °C.
When required to accommodate translational movements, pot bearings may be combined with sliding elements in accordance with EN 1337-2.
NOTE The minimum shade air temperature for a location should be obtained from meteorological data appropriate to a 120 year return period. Consideration should be given to adjustment of this temperature for height and local divergence such as frost pockets and sheltered low-lying areas if the data obtained applies to a general area rather than to a specific location.
