The failure modes of thin section bearings

  • Fatigue

For thin section bearings, fatigue ductile fracture is the main failure mode, so when using computer calculating the working life, it is necessary to calculate the static rigidity

 

  • Brittle fracture

For non rotating, low drive ratio, or sway bearings, partially plasticity deformation is the main failure mode, so it needs calculate static tensile strength.

 

  • Abrasive particles damage

For thin section bearings, heating and artificial board is the main failure mode, so except calculating the working life, we need check drive ratio.
