Microscale fatigue damage mechanisms in various Al-Sn-Si based bearing alloys used as linings of plain
automotive bearings are reported. Extensive work on previously developed alloys has concluded that
secondary phase particles such as Sn and Si are potential fatigue initiation sites with a complex
combination of various particle geometry parameters. A newly developed alloy contains a number of
complex widely scattered intermetallics with much finer and fewer Sn and Si particles. This alloy system
appears to be more resistant to initiate microscale fatigue damage compared to the previous systems.
