A Mroz image point, two surface, nonlinear-kinematic-hardening-plastic (MNKP) representation of bearing steel is inserted into a finite element model of 2-dimensional, line contact for pure rolling. The calculations are compared with previous results for the same contact pressure derived for elastic-linear-kinematic-hardening-plastic (ELKP) behavior. The residual stress, deformation, and the connection between continuing cyclic deformation, etching bands, and cracks are analyzed. Unlike the ELKP constitutive properties, the MNKP behavior displays a distinct transient region which results in higher residual stresses.
