Abstract : The focus of this research effort has been the study of structural dynamics with parameter and environmental uncertainties. The motivation for this study rests with the need to understand the dynamics and control of large space structures. Stochastic stability and output stationarity are also studied. Keywords: Stochastic system; Response; Decomposition stability.
