It is a great honour for me to discuss the report of ISSC Committee III.2 “Fatigue and Fracture”. I joined ISSC 30 years ago already in 1988, as a member of the Committee on Materials and Fabrication Technologies – by the way together with Mirek Kaminski, Chairman of the current Congress. Later I was Chairman of the Committee “Fatigue and Fracture” in the years 1994 - 2000, and afterwards, I joined the Standing Committee for 15 years, chairing the Congress in 2012. Insofar I can say that I belong to the ISSC-family, being happy to finally contribute with the official discussion.
