An approximate method for analyzing the response of Preisach hysteretic systems with non-local memory under stationary Gaussian excitation is proposed. The covariance matrix equation of system response is derived. The cross correlation function of Preisach hysteretic force and response in the covariance equation is evaluated based on the switching probability analysis and the Gaussian approximation of response process and an explicit expression for the cross correlation function is given for the case of symmetric Preisach weighting function. It is shown that the numerical result obtained by using the proposed method is in good agreement with that from digital simulation.
