Discussion: "Endurance Tests With Large-Bore Tapered-Roller Bearings to 2.2 Million DN" (Parker, R. J., Signer, H. R., and Pinel, S. I., 1982, ASME J. Lubr. Technol., 104, pp. 293–298)

temperature, case-carburized material such as CBS 1000M can resist fracture or cracking at conditions of high tensile hoop stress after spalling and significant cone raceway damage had occurred. Too few bearings were run at these conditions, because of availability, to obtain a reasonable statistical estimate of the rolling-element fatigue life. However, since four of the five bearings survived the 1100 hr cutoff (24 times rated catalog life) this bearing design/material combination does show
