It is well known in the reliability analysis for structural components subjected to cyclic random load that apart from the usually model parameters uncertainties are most important and significant for the final structural design. The purpose of this study is to discuss several problems in this area, and to develop a reliability-oriented design philosophy of fatigue experiments. A brief account is given of a residual strength model for the probabilistic prediction of structural safety when a component is subjected to cyclic random load.
