In this paper, the mechanism of the unique surface originated fatigue failure of spherical roller bearings will be clarified. Also, how the tangential force generated by rolling friction between rolling elements and raceways severely affects bearing life. This paper also outlines a method of enhancing the life of spherical roller bearings based on an understanding of the mechanism of the surface originated fatigue. This method involves improving the rolling friction conditions between rolling elements and raceways.
