Designing Bearing Fatigue Life Tests for Improving the Use of Testing Resources



A computer simulation study was conducted to investigate modifications of a current test plan for evaluating rolling contact fatigue life of experimental materials, so as to improve the use of testing resources and to produce more reliable data. The simulations revealed that a slight modification of the test plan, using available test rigs, could result in greater precision with fewer tests and a shorter average test duration.
