Abstract : The overall objective of this program is to improve the life, reliability and load capacity of concentrated contact machine elements such as rolling-element bearings, gears and cams. The chosen means of accomplishing this end are to investigate the fundamental process of lubrication in concentrated rolling-sliding contacts and seek, wherever possible, to relate the findings to the practical aspects of bearing, gear and cam performance.
