I would recommend "Vibration Analysis for Electronic Equipment" by
Steinberg. I don't work with EE stuff, but it's the best text I've
found for random vibe analysis.
This is essentially what Steinberg says:
Since the input is random, one can assume that the resulting stresses
are normally distributed. Therefore, the stress you get from your
model is considered the "1-sigma" stress level. This stress would
occur 68.3% of the time (assuming a normal dist). The 2-sigma
stresses are 2 times your 1-sigma stress, and occur 27.1% of the time.
And finally, the 3-sigma stress is obviously 3 times the 1-sigma
stress, and occurs 4.3% of the time. As a first pass, you can assume
that the 3-sigma stresses occur 100% of the time. If you pass with
positive margins (using Goodman, for instance), then you're good. If
you don't pass, then you can break your cycles down into the 1-, 2-,
and 3-sigma components and sum up your damage using Miner's Rule.
Hope this helps
