Connectivity; i.e.; connecting different types of simulation tools; becomes increasingly important. The objective is to be able to do cost effective simulations of a large system by utilizing existing tools together. The TLM (Transmission Line Modelling) co-simulation technique is stable; does not have numerical problems; and is proven. It has potential for being a cosimulation technique of general usage. The aim of the paper is an evaluation of TLM technique for rolling bearing applications via a study of a grinding spindle model. The conclusion is that the results of TLM and non-TLM simulations are similar for a realistic application with rolling bearings and applicable for engineering purposes. The numerical stability and performance are satisfactory for the considered application.
