I was invited by Tom Astrene of TLT to write a response to the
July 2010 TLT article (Ref. 1). My rebuttal — “In Search of a Fatigue
Limit: A Critique of ISO Standard 281:2007” — was published
in Tribology and Lubrication Engineering, TLT, August
2010 edition (Ref. 10). While this article is also available online,
I will attempt to summarize the essence of my response.
