Fatigue Surface Crack
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, […]

Fatigue Wear
Fatigue Wear

Fatigue wear is a type of wear where a number of cycles is needed to generate debris. The fatigue process in metals may induce the generation of surface and subsurface cracks, which after a critical […]

Corrosive Wear
Corrosive Wear

Corrosive wear occurs when the component operates in a corrosive media, liquid or gas [1, 2]. In this type of wear, the tribochemical reaction between corrosive agent and the bulk material generates a reaction (protective) […]
