When the bearing is running, its clearance is no longer equal to the initial one, as a result of the thermal regime and load. This paper presents a calculation method which takes into consideration the temperature distribution in the bearing, the load, and the elastic properties of the materials. The deduced calculus relations allow to establish the correction of the initial radial clearance in order to obtain the designed clearance when the bearing is running.
