Convergences of Cumulative Wear after Time of Bearing Operation


Article Preview

The numerous machine exploitation problems in the field of the experimental and numerical wear slide bearing determination problems demand to know information referring the features of the sequence of the existing wear process during the operation time. The above-mentioned information includes the velocity of the wear values increases during the particular time units of the operation and convergence and divergence properties of the wear value increases are very important. If we have two wear value increase processes, then very important is information which process is divergent more slowly. On the other hand, in comparison between two convergent processes, we must decide which process is convergent more quickly.
