During running-in conditions, contact occurs between surface asperities, which induce wear and bearing shell profile adaptation. Firstly, the bearing wear evolution is investigated for different but constant engine rotational speeds. Secondly, the wear is investigated for transient speed conditions. By comparison with a realistic wear coefficient, the real engine time required to reach a steady-state wear condition is predicted.
