This paper treats the theoretical fatigue analysis of non-Gaussian random loadings. It first reviews a method recently developed by the Authors, which is capable to account for the effect of load bandwidth and non-normality. Fatigue lives from simulated Gaussian and non-Gaussian loadings, as well as data from experiments taken from the literature, are compared with theoretical estimations. The non-Gaussian loading was modelled as a transformed Gaussian process. The results show how the load non-normality has a great effect on both the cycle distribution and the fatigue damage; the proposed method seems able to account for this effect correctly. Furthermore, the theoretical predictions are shown to be substantially comparable (with some exceptions) with the experimental data

Abstract

This paper treats the theoretical fatigue analysis of non-Gaussian random loadings. It first reviews a method recently developed by the Authors, which is capable to account for the effect of load bandwidth and non-normality. Fatigue lives from simulated Gaussian and non-Gaussian loadings, as well as data from experiments taken from the literature, are compared with theoretical estimations. The non-Gaussian loading was modelled as a transformed Gaussian process. The results show how the load non-normality has a great effect on both the cycle distribution and the fatigue damage; the proposed method seems able to account for this effect correctly. Furthermore, the theoretical predictions are shown to be substantially comparable (with some exceptions) with the experimental data
