In keeping with finite element method, the process is discrete. It is further required to exhibit a specified mean, standard deviation, and a global measure of correlation, i.e. correlation length. The specification of the random process is completed by imposing that it yields a maximum of the entropy. The case of a process with constant sign is considered next and an algorithm is formulated to simulate the non-Gaussian process yielding the maximum entropy. In the second part of the paper, this non-Gaussian model is used to represent the uncertain friction coefficient in a simple, lumped mass model of an elastic structure resting on a frictional support. The dynamic response of this uncertain system to a random excitation at its end is studied, focusing in particular on the occurrence of slip and stick.
