Zanini, R., Freitas, T., Silva, L., Gutierres, A. et al., "Evaluation of the Method of Failure Analysis in Angular Contact Bearings through the Envelope Technique," SAE Technical Paper 2012-36-0306, 2012, doi:10.4271/2012-36-0306.
More efficient and more reliable methods to analyze the performance of the bearing test samples help to reduce validation time during development of rolling bearings. This paper presents a study of the impact on airborne noise and structural borne noise of especial prepared rolling bearings with angular contact submitted for durability tests. The study aims to link specific bearing failures to characteristics in airborne noise and structural borne noise using for instance the “envelope technique”. In the future these patterns will enable more effective online monitoring of failure evolution.
