This paper deals with the determination of the pressure distribution in an acoustic half-space excited by a pressure pulse randomly moving along a line on the surface. When the random motion of the pressure pulse is a stationary stochastic process, the expectation of the random acoustic pressure field in the excited half-space is obtained using transform techniques.
