In this paper, the nonlinear free vibration stochastic characteristic of a smart laminated composite plate having random system properties is presented. The transverse shear effects have been included in the system equation in the frame work of higher order shear deformation theory. The analysis uses the Green-Lagrange nonlinear strain displacement relationship to model geometric nonlinearity. The direct iteration approach is used to handle deterministic geometric nonlinearity, and the perturbation approach is employed to handle the randomness in the system properties. Mean and variance of the random natural frequencies have been obtained by employing a C0 isoparametric nonlinear finite element model. Comparisons with the published results show the accuracy of the proposed procedure. A few results covering various features have been presented for a laminated composite plate with different boundary conditions.
