Two methods for calculating the power density input to structures excited by turbulent flow were developed and used to predict the average response of the structure. The input power density was calculated using the cross-spectral density of the random fluctuating pressure loading on the structure. The energy response of structures excited by distributed loading was obtained using the energy flow analysis method. Both methods for calculating the input power density and the method for calculating the energy density response were verified for beams and plates using classical modal analysis.
