This is a companion text to "Rolling Bearing Analysis, 2nd Edition" (1984), containing material on wear, endurance testing, fatigue life, materials and noise and vibration which is not covered in the first book. Also presented is a new chapter that will have substantial impact on the bearing industry - bearing design for perpetual life - based on newly released research done by SKF. The book also covers aspects of bearing lubrication which are not covered in the first. Contained in this reference source is information about design and application of bearing from a leading company in the business, providing material that is normally unavailable or very expensive and difficult for design engineers to obtain through their own research. It reports state-of-the-art information about bearing components.
