.... Fatigue failure (contact fatigue) is a key endurance criterion of the surfaces in rolling contact, and rolling-element fatigue has been recognized since the early 1900s by rolling bearing manufacturers because of the concentration of load in a small volume of the material with the geometry of rolling...
