The general method for correlating the fatigue pitting life of simple rolling elements with the life of bearings is discussed. A “correlation equation” is presented which permits the pitting fatigue life of full scale bearings to be estimated from minimal rolling contact rig data. Three M-50 (MV-1) bearings are analyzed using this equation. In all three cases the life is predicted within a factor of two.
