prof Cretu

Systems Design and Analysis (ESDA) of ASME 2012 in Nantes (France). By proposing a comparison between crowned (ZB) and logarithm profiles, the article addresses the major issue of roller profile as a key element to attain a longer rating life for both cylindrical and tapered roller bearings.
