ISO 281:2007 - Caveat Emptor - October 2016

Erwin V. Zaretsky, PE

The article "ISO 281:2007 - Caveat Emptor" appeared in the October 2016 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

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.

bearing life, ISO 281, standards
