A combination of spectral and probabilistic analysis techniques is proposed to estimate the fatigue damage of jackets subjected to intermittent wave loading. The resulting non Gaussian response process is considered to be a mixture of Gaussian and shifted exponential. It is shown that the peak density deviates significantly from the Rayleigh and Gaussian response assumption is unconservative for fatigue damage evaluation at higher sea states.
