A general overview of the problems, methods, and results achieved in random vibration since its inception as a technical discipline nearly 30 years ago is given with particular emphasis on developments during the past 15 years. Research areas of current interest include development of improved probabilistic models for sources of random excitation, development of more effective random response prediction procedures for nonlinear systems and systems with parametric excitation, development of improved procedures for estimating reliability of systems undergoing random vibration, and development of improved techniques for identification of system parameters from measurements made during random vibration.
