For applications where bearings are running in typical operating conditions – i.e. normal speeds, good lubrication conditions and not highly or peak loaded - determine the appropriate bearing size based on the required bearing life, taking into account the possible effects of rolling contact fatigue (RCF).
This section describes the bearing rating life equations and the factors that must be determined to make the evaluation:
