Characterisation of white etching crack damage in

Abstract White etching cracks (WECs) have been identified as a main failure mode of wind turbine gearbox bearings (WTGBs). This study reports an investigation of the destructive sectioning of a failed low speed planetary stage WTGB and the damage found at manganese sulphide (MnS) inclusions.

Figure 4 and Figure 5a shows that the crack end is filled with a significant amount of iron oxide, and there is a large number of oxidized round spots on both sides of the crack ends. The maximum oxidized spot diameter is up to 3 m.

Elucidating white-etching matter through high strain

as white-etching cracks and white-etching buttery wings seems to be the beating/rubbing of crack faces under the resulting shear stresses of either compressive loading or rolling contact fatigue that lead to a reduction of local compliance and increased localised deformation. This proposed mechanism instead, does explain why white-etching matter can be seen in high strain Formation mechanisms of white etching cracks and white Mar 14, 2014 · Abstract. The formation of white etching cracks in the 1 mm zone beneath the contact surface in steel rolling element bearings causes a premature wear failure mode called white structure flaking. The formation drivers of white etching cracks are contested, as are the initiation and propagation mechanisms of the cracks.

Formation mechanisms of white etching cracks and white

The formation of white etching cracks in the 1 mm zone beneath the contact surface in steel rolling element bearings causes a premature wear failure mode called white structure flaking. The formation drivers of white etching cracks are contested, as are the initiation and propagation mechanisms of the cracks. Laboratory simulation of martensite formation of white White etching layer (WEL) is a frequently observed microstructural phenomenon in rail surface, formed during dynamic wheel/rail contact. It is considered as one of the main initiators for rolling contact fatigue cracks. There are several hypotheses for the formation

When manganese also is present, iron-richphases become quite complex, and MnAl6 , probably containing some chromium, appears as a dispersoid. Cold working of aluminum-magnesium alloys produces prominent de­ formation bands that are decorated by magnesium-rich precipitates (Fig. 12).

Transformed bands are also called white etch- ing bands because of their white colour under an optical microscope after etching with nitial. As a result of their extremely fine microstructure, transformed bands are known to be harder and more brittle than the bulk material [1]. The microstructure inside transformed bands cannot be

White etching cracks Currently, WTGB failure via WECs is not fully understood therefore bearing life prediction models have yet to be developed to include this failure mode [4, 5, 10, 11] in the selection of bearings.
