For years it has been customary to analyze the motion of systems subjected only to periodic or mathematically expressible loadings; such as sine waves and impulses. In the first part of the paper, we will concern ourselves with the derivation of the power spectral density relationship for one dimension and its counter part for a two dimensional problem. In part II, the vehicle model and its response functions are determined. The equations for the analysis of the output at a point other than the mass center are determined. Finally, the question is considered whether the output can be minimized through the use of reasonable values of the parameters or can it only be kept below some prescribed value.
