The

**method**can be applied to both weakly and strongly nonlinear responses . The spectrum of the strongly nonlinear response may be of narrow or arbitrary bandwidth . Especially the latter case , it always may be met in seakeeping ...Page 107

As an improvement to equivalent stochastic linearization of the drag force , an equivalent stochastic " quadratization "

As an improvement to equivalent stochastic linearization of the drag force , an equivalent stochastic " quadratization "

**method**is proposed , in which the drag force nonlinearity is replaced by an " equivalent " quadratic nonlinearity .Page 260
