Abstract:

This report develops theoretical and statistical formulas for estimating peak probability functions and structural fatigue damage. Narrowband Gaussian processes, wideband Gaussian processes, and non-Gaussian processes are considered. Results cover both single degree-of-freedom systems and multiple degree-of-freedom systems. Confidence limits and sample size requirements are derived to estimate fatigue damage from finite size data samples.
