Paper Abstract

A key to gaining an understanding of the bearing failure process and the risk of a catastrophic failure was the measurement of the relative motion between the bearing and the axle under simulated service conditions. The instrumentation and test techniques described here allowed direct measurements of the bearing cone slip during field testing.
