Movement analyses of bearings with regard to stable and unstable motion behavior typically investigate the cage whirl. However, some experimental and simulation-based studies exist that analyze the movements of the rolling elements. The majority of these investigations focus on lower shaft speeds. This paper presents an image-based approach for investigating the rolling element motions under high-speed operation condition. A new evaluation algorithm is presented and its suitability is verified first by generic images and afterward by experiments on cylindrical roller bearings.
