Based on Gaussian load processes, a new formula suitable for evaluating the combined fatigue damage due to high and low frequency loads is derived. Then, by using of the Winterstein’s transformation, the developed formula is extended for the combination of non-Gaussian loads. The numerical simulation shows that the predicted damage by the derived formula is very simple to use and close to the rain-flow prediction.
