... axially in the raceway and was flanked by areas of markedly different-textured flaking damage. Stringers of nonmetallic inclusions were revealed at the origin during metallographic examination of a section parallel to the axially oriented origin. Thus it was concluded that the failure was caused...

... distribution of nonmetallic inclusions near the fracture initiation site. Fracture mechanics analysis indicated that, if stresses acting on the shaft were induced only by normal service loads, there was little likelihood that the inclusions served as failure initiation sites. Further examination of the bearing...

Cracks initiated at the highly stressed surface and propagated across the section as a result...

The fracture was revealed to be parallel to the direction of the manganese sulfide stringer inclusions. The presence of significant banding of the ferrite...
