    Plastic displacements of a Gaussian white noise excited three degrees of freedom non-ideal elasto-plastic oscillator are measured in laboratory experiments and the plastic displacements are compared to computer simulated results for the corresponding ideal elasto-plastic oscillator. The comparative analysis leads to an equivalent ideal plastic yield limit that gives good coincidence between the simulated distributions and the experimentally determined distributions.
