A parametric study on composite laminate plates with integrated damping treatment is realized. The goal is to assess the impact of a viscoelastic core on the mechanical performances as well as on the vibration damping efficiency. This work considers as design parameters the damping layer thickness and its position in the laminate lay-up. The obtained results enable to propose a guideline for multifunctional composite structure with intergrated damping treatment.
