In the field of rolling element bearing, the degradation of bearing health could be detected by means of suitable damage indexes. Band-Kurtosis index, that is the kurtosis value of the band-filtered signal, is often assumed. The critical point of this approach is the selection of a suitable filter band. In the paper, the use of a chaos metrics, namely the Higuchi fractal dimension as damage indicator is described. The trend of this index is compared with the common approach of band-kurtosis indicator for an experimental case of a rolling element bearing in which the defect developed until a permanent failure.
