Bearing Steel Technology-Advances and State of the Art in Bearing Steel Quality Assurance: 7th Volume

Editor(s): John M. Beswick

Twenty-five peer-reviewed papers, written by experts in 14 countries, provide the latest global advances in bearing steel quality assurance. Sections cover:

Review of Global Bearing Steel and the Rolling Bearing Industry—describes the impact of Swedish steel technology on bearing steel quality assurance.

Developments in Global Bearing Steel Making Processes—details a study of vacuum carbon deoxidation of high carbon chromium bearing steel

Advances in Steel Maker Testing and Quality Assurance—covers advances in bearing steel quality assurance by ultrasonic testing technologies; evaluation procedures of nonmetallic inclusions in steel for highly reliable bearings; reliability of cleanliness measurements; and radioactivity inspection applied in the steel-making industry

Implementation and Use of Extreme Value Analysis Micro Inclusion Rating Methodology—describes the methodology behind the ASTM E2283 Extreme Value Analysis.

Bearing Steel Making and Bearing Manufacturing Metallurgy Quality Assurance—provides data on the bearing steel casting method, alloy content/hardenability, forging symmetry and tube making.

Low Alloy Bearing Steels and Heat Treatments for Improved Bearing Quality—discusses new developments in through hardened bearing steel grades for use in contaminated lubrication; and characteristics of vanadium addition in hardened steel for rolling contact applications.

High Alloy Bearing Steels and Heat Treatments for Improved Bearing Quality—covers duplex hardened steel, plasma heat treatment, nitrided high temperature steel, austentic stainless steel.

Microstructure Transformation and Use in Advanced Rolling Bearing Performance Predication and Quality Assurance—examines x-ray microdiffraction measurements for the analysis of bearing operation conditions; and the flaking process in bearings by white etching area generation.

Advances in Material Quality Factors in Life Prediction—covers multi-axial fatigue criteria and micro plastic material models that support the advances in material quality factoring for bearing life prediction.
