The problem of representing random fields describing the material and boundary properties of the physical system at discrete points of the spatial domain is studied in the context of linear stochastic finite element method. A randomly parameterized diffusion system with a set of independent identically distributed stochastic variables is considered. The discretized parametric fields are interpolated within each element with multidimensional Lagrange polynomials and integrated into the weak formulation. The proposed discretized randomfield representation has been utilized to express the random fluctuations of the domain boundary with nodal position coordinates and a set of random variables. The description of the boundary perturbation has been incorporated into the weak stochastic finite element formulation using a stochastic isoparametric mapping of the random domain to a deterministic master domain. A method for obtaining the linear system of equations under the proposed mapping using generic finite element weak formulation and the stochastic spectral Galerkin framework is studied in detail. The treatment presents a unified way of handling the parametric uncertainty and random boundary fluctuations for dynamic systems. The convergence behavior of the proposed methodologies has been demonstrated with numerical examples to establish the validity of the
