Random Eigenvalues and Structural Dynamic Models

  • Haym Benaroya
Conference paper

Abstract

A review of the literature is provided of the study of structural vibration problems with random parameters. There have been several approaches to this problem. These have been encapsulated in this paper for the benefit of those who need to assess such possibilities.

In particular, the algebraic theory of random variables is delineated here with the application in mind being the determination or estimation of the statistics of the eigenvalues of linear dynamical systems. Various transformation techniques are summarized and discussed in addition to simple application.
