A simple constructive technique for the development of rate-type hysteresis models for general nonlinear system is presented. The technique is used to develop hysteresis models to incorporate time history-dependent postyield restorting forces, and general pinching behavior in smoothly varying deteriorating models. Applications of these models to random vibration analysis modeling via simulation and equivalent linearization techniques under Gaussian noise excitation is presented.
