Abstract : DESCRIPTORS: (Bearings, Ball bearings, *Roller bearings, *Lubrication, Fatigue (Mechanics).) (Test equipment, Fatigue (Mechanics), Bearings, Tracer studies, Metals, Particles, Transport properties, Electrical conductance, Measure ment, Films, Lubricants, Thickness, Deter mination, X-ray spectroscopy.) An investigation is described which is intended to provide information on (1) estimation methods for the endurance life of rolling element bearings operating under extreme environmental speed or load conditions and/or lubricated by means other than an adequate supply of cool mineral oil or medium temperature grease, (2) estimation methods of further improved reliability for the endurance life of rolling element bearings requiring extreme reliability under any operating condition, (3) data on the performance in rolling element bearings, of a series of widely different lubricants and echniques for performance evaluation of other lubricants, and (4) an improved understanding of the physical phenomena occurring on rolling contact lubrication, especially the formation, maintenance or breakdown of fluid films, their dimensions, pressures and effect on endurance life.
