Computerized symbolic algebra, in conjunction with the code REDUCE, is utilized in dealing with nonstationary random vibration of single-degree-of-freedom systems. Application of REDUCE yields closed-form solutions in the cases where manual evaluation is cumbersome and, as past experience shows, susceptible to human error.
