RandBar is an easy-to-run code to simulate the nonlinear stochastic dynamics of a bar structural system with attached discrete elements.

**RandBar - Random Dynamics of a Bar System** is an easy-to-run code to simulate the nonlinear stochastic dynamics of a bar structural system with attached discrete elements. The implementation follows an educational style, to make its use very intuitive.

This code was developed to conduct stochastic simulations of a bar structural system with with attached discrete elements. The underlying results are reported in the following paper:

**RandBar** routines are commented in order to explain their functionality to the final user. Each routine has a short description about its purpose, and a list of inputs and/or outputs.
