The mean square deflection of a non-linear string subjected to nonplanar Gaussian white noise excitation is determined by the perturbation method. It is shown that increase in tension due to stretching, and transverse transverse mode coupling tend to reduce the mean square deflection; while longitudinal-transverse mode coupling tends to counter this effect to some extent. These results are in conformity with the trend observed in the case of periodic excitation.
