An organized approach for implementing the techniques of random process theory in the recovery of structural information from random vibration data is presented. The boundaries of various configured Bernoulli-Euler like beams are subjected to random vibrations and the acceleration response of these beams is measured and recorded. The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) makes the use of random process theory both a feasible and economical tool for experimental structural analysis.
