The paper deals with implementation of the optimizing process into multi-axial rainflow analysis and cumulative damage calculation. It’s presented computational program FEA_FAT compiled in MATLAB. Stress analysis is realized by finite element procedure and the cumulative damage can be calculated by using two fundamental ways – critical plane approach and so called integral approach. Testing example presents random stress analysis and damage prediction of a simple FE model with non-proportional loading.
