By the use of the extended finite element method the analysis of the random response of a linear structure to a continuous excitation field, random in time and space, is presented in this paper. The extended finite element method includes the formulation for obtaining the equivalent node force power spectrum. The corresponding computer program has been produced. A random response analysis of a sluice gate support shows satisfactory agreement with the experiment results.
