First and second-order moments of the stress tensor are obtained for the elastostatic problem concerning the half-plane subjected to random boundary tractions. The cases treated include the following types of applied surface tractions: (a) A purely random Gaussian load (white noise); (b) concentrated loads of random magnitudes separated by equal intervals; (c) a concentrated load acting at a random location; and (d) concentrated loads of equal magnitudes separated by random intervals.
