A new non-Gaussian linearization method is developed for extending the analysis of Gaussian white-noise excited nonlinear oscillator to incorporate sinusoidal excitation. The non-Gaussian linearization method is developed through introducing a modulated correction factor on the linearization coefficient which is obtained by Gaussian linearization. The time average of cyclostationary response of variance and noise spectrum is analyzed through the correction factor. The validity of the present non-Gaussian approach in predicting the statistical response is supported by utilizing Monte Carlo simulations. The present non-Gaussian analysis, without imposing restrictive analytical conditions, can be obtained by solving nonlinear algebraic equations. The non-Gaussian solution effectively predicts accurate sinusoidal and noise response when the nonlinear system is subjected to both sinusoidal and white-noise excitations.
