Results are presented from an investigation of the load distribution to the main bearing of the ANFPS-24 radar under actual operating conditions. The bearing is a 10-foot diameter 4-point contact being subjected to thrust, radial, and overturning loads. Load determination was made by instrumenting one of the bearing balls to measure its deformation due to load. The results are inconclusive due to problems of mechanical interference incurred during testing however, some noteworthy data are presented.
