Describes a method of improving test result comparability by evaluating the stresses in the bearing layers leading to fatigue. A similar evaluation is required in practical applications. Because the stresses are the result of pressure build-up in the hydrodynamic film, it is essential to fully state the conditions of operation and lubrication. Is restricted to fatigue under full hydrodynamic separation of the bearing surfaces by a lubricant film.
