Abstract : The report reviews the techniques used to conduct a failure analysis of precision bearings. The review is arranged in a manner consistent with the sequence of bearing disassembly. The information to be gained by and the limitations of each technique are identified, and appropriate examples of fluid- and solid-lubricated systems are presented. The techniques used for lubricant analysis and micro-examination are reviewed, but particular emphasis is given to their integration with surface analysis.
