This paper deals with the stochastic finite element analysis of nonlinear structural dynamic problems, using Monte Carlo simulation techniques. The stochasticity of those problems arises from the spatial randomness of certain material properties of the structures involved. Various conclusions are drawn concerning the response variability of the systems analyzed.
