Fatigue is produced by the sum of randomly phased sine waves. Fatigue damage during this non-Gaussian, finite random process is a function of the noise bandwidth, the fatigue slope, mean stress, and the rms stress. Methods are developed for predicting the cycles to failure. Comparison is made with data.

Contributed by the Applied Mechanics Division of THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS for publication in the ASME JOURNAL OF APPLIED MECHANICS. Manuscript received by the ASME Applied Mechanics Division, January 13, 2000; final revision, November 13, 2000. Associate Editor: A. Needleman. Discussion on the paper should be addressed to the Editor, Prof. Lewis T. Wheeler, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Houston, Houston, TX 77204-4792, and will be accepted until four months after final publication of the paper itself in the ASME JOURNAL OF APPLIED MECHANICS.
