    Brief Outline

  3. 2.

    Measurement of Characteristics of Stationary Random Processes

  4. 3.

    Random Vibration of Multi-Degree-of-Freedom Systems with Associated Effect of Cross-Correlations

  5. 4.

    Wide-Band Random Vibration of Continuous Structures with Associated Effect of Cross-Correlations



Spectral Density Random Process Autocorrelation Function Frequency Response Function Random Vibration 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
