... to estimate the fatigue lives of bearing elements and account for the effects of topological randomness of the bearing materials, in this work, damage mechanics modeling approach is incorporated into a Voronoi finite element method recently developed by the authors. Contrary to most of the life models...

... consist of randomly shaped and sized grains, which cannot be properly analyzed using the classical and commercially available finite element method. Hence, in this investigation, a Voronoi finite element method (VFEM) was developed to simulate the microstructure of bearing materials. The VFEM...
