Abstract: A new technique is presented for the solution of nonlinear random vibration problems. The technique is based on a spectral expansion of the random excitation and of the random response using the Karhunen-Loeve and the Polynomial Chaos representations, respectively. The analytical results are found in good agreement with pertinent Monte Carlo simulation data over a wide range of nonlinearities.
