The study aims to predict elastic and damping properties of composite laminated plates from the measured dynamical properties. Elastic constants of laminates and damping properties have been determined by using an identification procedure based on experiment design, and multi-level theoretical approach. The present paper is the first attempt at proposing a novel adaptive procedure to derive stiffness parameters from forced sandwich plate’s vibration experiments.
