Rolling contact fatigue (RCF) unavoidable mode of failure observed in two surfaces which are rolling with relative to each other. Rolling contact fatigue is the name given to crack growth and material damage generated as a result of high loads transmitted between two surfaces. An understanding of rolling contact fatigue failure mechanism and a prediction of lifetimes are of interest to both manufacturer and researcher. Subsurface originated cracks have been recognized as one of the main modes of failure for rolling contact fatigue (RCF) of bearings. Numbers of investigators have attempted to determine the physical mechanism involved in rolling contact fatigue of bearings and proposed models to predict their fatigue lives. This paper attempts to cover the most widely used life models used in RCF.
