wear and surface fatigue in rolling bearings

Groove shape effect on wear behavior in PTFE radial bearings under rolling contact fatigue (RCF) was investigated RCF tests in water-lubricated conditions were carried out at different loads and rotation speeds The groove surfaces after testing were observed by using a laser confocal microscope and a two-dimensional shape measurement sensor 2019-11-5Fatigue wear in rolling bearings generally starts with micro-pitting—small areas on the bearings' surface where material has been removed due to repetitive stress At its terminal point surface fatigue causes significant surface spalling—large craters often several hundred microns across which are easily visible to the naked eye

Rolling Contact Fatigue

Rolling-contact fatigue (RCF) is defined as a failure or material removal driven by crack propagation caused by the near-surface alternating stress field It is typically considered that if a bearing is properly mounted aligned lubricated maintained and not overloaded then the material fails due to RCF [1]

etc but the presence of wear may significantly reduce the rolling fatigue lifetime The aim of the present work is to set up a laboratory facility for the testing of RCF of gearbox bearings under controlled load sliding and lubrication conditions In this paper the test set-up is described and preliminary results are presented The surface

2019-7-9Most of the balls in each of the four bearings exhibited at least one and as many as four small spots of surface spalling apparently due to arc strikes and subsequent enlargement by contact fatigue Figures 12 through 14 show the spots were typically circular or semi-circular shaped

Mechanical wear — How bearings fail Part 1 of 6

• Mechanical wear • Indentations and brinelling • Smearing • Surface distress • Corrosion • Electric current damage Other forms of damage show up as flaking or cracks Wear: If everything goes well during the operating life of a bearing it will reach its predicted end of life through normal wear or simple material fatigue You

2020-8-11Wear of rolling bearings appears in many different forms In this article Dr Steve Lacey Engineering Manager at Schaeffler UK describes the principle types and causes of rolling bearing wear as well as guidance on remedial action Wear occurs when surfaces slide against each other and there is insufficient or no lubrication to keep them apart

2020-2-14Whereas both through hardened and surface hardened steels can serve well in ordinary applications where rolling contact fatigue or wear are the prime concerns case hardened bearings because of their tough cores serve better in circumstances where bending torsion and impact stresses have to be resisted Surface modified bearings are therefore

Ball and rolling element bearings are perhaps the most widely used components in industrial machinery They are used to support load and allow relative motion inherent in the mechanism to take place Subsurface originated spalling has been recognized as one of the main modes of failure for rolling contact fatigue (RCF) of bearings

A previously developed model for bearing life calculation based on high-cycle fatigue including the separation of the surface and the subsurface survival of the rolling contact is herewith further extended It now includes the effects of frictional heating with a sharp temperature rise developed in the rolling

2 Fatigue wear in rolling bearings generally starts with micropitting - small areas on the bearings' surface where material has been removed due to repetitive stress At its terminal point surface fatigue causes significant surface spalling - large craters often several hundreds of microns across which are easily visible to the naked eye

2020-8-17Modelling the interaction wear-fatigue To model the interaction wear/fatigue in bearings a rolling contact fatigue (RCF) model needs to be applied at every over-rolling of the raceway with a previously modified profile (on both surfaces) due to wear in this way both phenomena (wear and fatigue
