The paper describes the changes that take place in an oscillator with damping, whose vibrations were forced by a random series of impulses. The idea of application of the qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis for solving the problems that occur in mechanical engineering has been presented. Qualitative methods were used to design simulation and experimental studies verifying the stochastic model. Quantitative methods were applied to solve a reverse problem which consisted in finding the distributions of the values of impulses forcing the vibrations of the oscillator.
