Rolling bearings is one of the important elements in rotating machinery that they are under rolling contact fatigue, so for better estimation of remaining life of these elements a model which is considered multiple moving loads based on the linear fracture mechanics has been proposed. Considering the effect of the multiple moving loads is a key element of this model that is not considered in literature. The contact surface is modeled by a half-plane with an edge crack. Rolling contact is simulated by moving a load distribution on the boundary of a half-plane. The calculation of the crack path and stress intensity factors is carried out by the step-by-step process on the basis of the singular integral equations method. The effect of the friction coefficient and considering two concentrated moving load on the crack growth path for different angles between the initial crack and boundary of the half-plane and remaining life of a surface under the fatigue rolling contact for 75XГCT steel is analyzed. The results of this analysis are compared with results from previous model. According to the results of the remaining life obtained by increasing the numbers of moving loads on the contact surface the remaining life decrease and get closer to the real state. Furthermore, the remaining life decreases with increasing friction coefficient.
