Number of important engineering components and elements such as gears, rollers, bearings operate in conditions of rolling-sliding contact loading. Determination of fatigue lives of such components and elements is very important for engineering practice but remains quite chalenging task due to complex states of stress and strain in the material in the vicinity of contact (multiaxiality, non-proportionality, rotation of principal axes, mean compressive stress) as well as complex contact conditions such as loading amplitude, complex geometry of bodies in contact, type of lubrication, value of coefficient of friction, etc. Proposed fatigue life calculation model for cases of rolling-sliding contact is based on critical plane approach in the form of Fatemi-Socie crack initiation criterion. Developed model was implemented in the case of gears teeth flanks in mesh and compared with results and fatigue lives of gears reported in literature. Good agreement was determined confirming validity of developed model. Further advantage of presented approach and developed model is obtained information on critical location(s) and critical plane(s) orientation which can subsequently be used for estimation of crack shapes in initial phases of their growth and later damage type into which they can be expected to develop.
