In this article, a finite element formulation based on classical laminated plate theory is used for the study of vibration and damping behavior of viscoelastic FGMs sandwich plates. The properties of the FGMs plates are functionally graded in the thickness direction according to a volume fraction power law distribution. The property of viscoelastic layer is accounted by using frequency and temperature independent complex modulus. Modal strain energy concept is used to evaluate damping instead of solving a complex eigen-value problem. The study has been carried out on clamped-clamped plate for different FGMs material pairs. © Krishtel eMaging Solutions Private Limited.
