In this paper, vibration problems of a simply-supported elastic beam subjected to randomly spaced moving loads with a uniform speed are treated under the assumption that the input load sequence is a Poisson process. In the case in which the inertial effect of moving loads is neglected, the time history, the power spectral density, and the various moments of the response are examined and the effects of the speed of moving loads upon the beam are made clear.
