Experimental investigations of the response of a rectangular plate under a point random force have been performed to verify the asymptotic behaviour predicted by Asymptotic Modal Analysis (AMA). Measurements have been made for various frequency bandwidths, center frequencies, and locations of the point force. The experimental results approach the results predicted by AMA as the frequency bandwidth becomes large. Moreover, experimental results show that the responses at all points of the plate except for some special areas become the same as the frequency bandwidth becomes large. However, the ratio of experimental results to AMA results has a greater variation from unity when the location of the point force is near the edge of the plate, than when the location of the point force is at the center of the plate. All experimental results show good agreement with the expected results from AMA
