The establishment of relevant model and solving an inverse random source problem are one of the main tools for analyzing mechanical properties of elastic materials. In this paper, we study an inverse random source problem for biharmonic equation in two dimension. Under some regularity assumptions on the structure of random source, the well-posedness of the forward problem is established. Moreover, based on the explicit solution of the forward problem, we can solve the corresponding inverse random source problem via two transformed integral equations. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the validity and effectiveness of the proposed inversion method.
