In an engineering approach, the chaotic motions and the corresponding loads should be considered as a deterministic system as well as a stochastic process. The criterium proposed to distinguish between these two contrary models uses the return period of two crossings of a sufficiently large admissible stress. Numerical results are presented for the double pendulum, a system of two degrees of freedom only.
