Abstract

Formulation of the title problem using the Green's function of the beam or plate allows solution by the methods of classical modal analysis. These are briefly reviewed in this context and the necessary results are stated for both classically and nonclassically damped systems, the mean square response to stationary excitation being obtained in terms of spectral integrals. Some cases in which these can be evaluated analytically are examined.
