In classical stochastic linearization method, the nonlinear force is replaced by an equivalent linear one. Several nonclassical schemes were suggested in recent years, based on potential or complementary energy criteria. Here, these criteria are compared with each other, and the classical stochastic linearization scheme, to determine their efficacy.
