Stress response is the foundation for calculating a structure’s fatigue life during vibration testing. The frequency-domain method based on stress frequency-response function (SFRF) is widely used because of its convenience. For Gaussian random excitation, the frequency-domain method may have a good accuracy. But when it comes to super-Gaussian random excitation, this method is not that applicable. In this paper, the time-domain method for calculating the stress response of a cantilever beam under super-Gaussian random excitation is proposed by using mode superimposition method. Two numerical examples are presented with the help of MATLAB. As a result, for linear system, when the excitation is Gaussian (super-Gaussian) distributed, the stress response is Gaussian (super-Gaussian) distributed. And when the frequency span of the excitation keeps the same, the larger the kurtosis of the excitation is, the larger the kurtosis of the response will be. For super-Gaussian stress response, the bandwidth of the excitation can influence the kurtosis of the stress response. Specifically, the narrower the bandwidth is, the larger the kurtosis will be.
