Bearing life statistics
As for any mechanical device, bearings encounter variations in their life even in identical operating conditions. The Weibull statistics is commonly assumed to govern these variations. Listen to this recorded webinar and know more about life rating and bearing life statistic.
As for any mechanical device, bearings encounter variations in their life even in identical operating conditions. The bearing life is rated using the L10 life, a key parameter of the Weibull statistics. Listen to our expert Sébastien Blachère while he shares the basic statistics needed to understand the meaning of this L10 life.
Explanation is given on the correct interpretation of the L10 life, as well as higher reliability levels like the L5 or L1. Other strongly related topics like system life and life testing are also presented.
