The present paper deals with the random response analysis of clamped thick laminated rectangular plates subjected to white noise excitation. The refined plate theory postulated by Reddy has been used. The analysis has been done using an integral equation technique. The random response results obtained for istropic square plates based on different plate theories (viz.) classical theory, first order theory and refined theory, have been compared. A parametric study has been conducted for angle ply and cross ply plates by varying the lay up of layers and a/h ratios.
