ABSTRACTThe cam-roller system, commonly used in heavy duty truck applications, consists in a roller follower actuated by the engine camshaft to transmit the cam linear movement. At the application under study, the contact to the cam is through a roller made of 100Cr6 bearing steel. In a Dynamometer test, two out of six rollers presented an unacceptable level of wear, characterized by formation of pitting and spalling, typical of contact fatigue wear. Plastic deformation caused by high friction sliding was als…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
