static Axial Load Calculation

The maximum axial load permissible for a rod end is determined by the following formula.  This formula does not take into consideration the bending of the shank due to a moment force.  Also, this formula does not consider the strength  of the stake in cartridge type construction.

  • Axial strength (A)

A = .78 [(E + .176 H)2 – E2] x X


X = Allowable Stress (see table below)
E = Ball Diameter
H = Housing Width
