A practical approach is developed for analyzing the spectral response of a nonlinear system subjected to both parametric and external Gaussian white noise excitations. The technique is implemented through the combined methods of equivalent external excitation and equivalent linearization to derive an equivalent linear system under equivalent external noise excitation. The spectral response isthen obtained through utilizing the input/output spectral relation and covariance matching condition.A parametric noise excited linear system, Duffing oscillator, and nonlinear system with hysteretic nonlinearity are selected for investigation. The validity of the proposed method for analyzing spectralresponse is further supported by some analytical solutions and FFT technique through Monte Carlo simulations.
