  • Rolling contact fatigue (RCF) is known as the dominant factor determining the service life of bearing materials. In this work, the fatigue life of the typical bearing alloy was significantly improved by introducing a nanoskin layer on the surfaces of the test specimens. The nanoskin layer structure was obtained by means of the ultrasonic nanocrystal surface modification (UNSM) technology. The microstructure of the nanoskin was analyzed via scanning electron microscope (SEM), electron back… CONTINUE READING
