This Standard specifies methods of calculating the basic dynamic
load rating and rating life of rolling bearings designed in
accordance with bearings-related standards specified in JIS
B 1511, and manufactured by quenching the steel material
specified in JIS G 4805 or alloy steel equivalent
thereto in quality to an appropriate hardness.
In addition to the methods of calculating the basic rating life,
which is the life associated with 90 % reliability with
conventional operating conditions, this Standard also specifies
methods of calculating the modified rating life, in which various
reliabilities, lubrication condition, contaminated lubricant and
fatigue load of the bearing are taken into account.
The following should be noted in using this Standard.
— This Standard does not cover the influence of wear, corrosion
and electrical erosion on bearing life.
— This Standard is not applicable to designs where the rolling
elements operate directly on a shaft or housing surface, unless
that surface is equivalent in all respects to the bearing ring (or
washer) raceway it replaces.
— Double-row radial bearings and double-direction thrust
bearings are, when referred to in this Standard, presumed to be
