Comparing Surface Failure Modes in Bearings and Gears: Appearances versus Mechanisms


Contact fatigue modes are identified over a range of modified lambda values. Describes failure modes and interprets the wear, fracture and/or fatigue mechanisms that lead to the failure initiation. Considering the similarity in appearance of gear and bearing failure modes in light of the different relative surface motions and tractions of the two contacts, this comparison helps provide insight into the basic causes of the failures and suggests methods to avoid them.
