This paper extends the classical theory of random fatigue to multiaxial stress fields, using a quadratic criterion. An equivalent uniaxial random process is constructed by combining the power spectral densities of the normal and tangential stresses according to the von Mises criterion. This process, that we call the von Mises stress, is used to evaluate the damage with a uniaxial model of random fatigue. A finite element implementation is proposed.
