The investigation of Part I is extended to the case when the Canadian MAGLEV vehicle is subjected to a combination of periodic as well as dominant random disturbances from the guideways. Appropriate mathematical modeling of the input process is presented in terms of spectral density function which is further modeled as the output of a second order linear filter under a white noise input for easy analysis. The combined filter-vehicle stochastic equations are solved numerically and the suspension bounce acceleration behavior for different system parameters is presented.
