Abstract : Statistical parameters of the displacement field of a linearly elastic shell are formulated in terms of the corresponding parameters of the loads. The example of a circular, cylindrical panel is considered, and for the simply supported case the second order correlation function of the radial displacement under a purely random pressure is worked out in detail. Several interesting features of the response are discussed. (Author)
