Damage in bearings is closely associated with the presence of microstructural alterations, known as white etching areas (WEAs) and white etching cracks (WECs). One of the main reasons for the creation of these microstructural alterations is the presence of defects in the material, such as non-metallic inclusions. Manganese sulfides and...

Bearing failure is a cause of concern in a variety of machinery such as turbines, transmissions, drills, engines, etc. It is often associated with rolling contact fatigue (RCF) triggered from damage initiation at non-metallic inclusions (NMI's). Experimental evidence shows that damage initiation lifetime is highly sensitive to the NMI...

Wind turbine (WT) gear boxes are prone to failure well below the expected 20 years’ lifetime of a WT. It has been identified that most of the failures observed are due to white etch crack flaking. Although this type of failure has been intensely studied, the underlying mechanisms have not been identified; however, recent advances have shown that...
