Bearing Steels: Special Issue

H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


It is extraordinary that a steel bearing can survive stress pulses of 2 GPa some half a million times a minute, over the service life of an aero engine. Or that it can be expected to reliably support the stochastic loads created by the buffeting of sails on giant offshore windmills designed to rescue the world from carbon dioxide catastrophes and wars driven by the thirst for oil. Bearing steels are the unsung heros of most of the arduous technologies that improve the quality of ordinary life.

This editorial describes a collection of papers published on the subject of steels for bearings. The papers are published in the journal Materials Science and Technology.

Materials Science and Technology 28 (2012) 1-2.
