The effects of kinematic sliding of Hertzian contacts are studied from three different standpoints. i) by analysing the combination of sliding speed and contact pressure giving rise to seizure, i.e. high instantaneous contact temperatures leading to film collapse, ii) by assessing the possible effects of sliding to surface traction and fatigue, iii) by discussing other possible effects of sliding in heavily loaded lubricated contacts as the concurrent damage mechanism caused by wear and rolling contact fatigue. It is found that only the first and the third mechanisms might have a direct relationship between high sliding and reduced rolling bearing life.
